Week in Review: Jan. 14 to Jan. 18

A possible end to the Bedford Housing Authority, a BHS assistant principal in consideration for a top job at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School and more in Bedford this past week.


The Bedford Housing Authority, one of 240 public housing authorities across Massachusetts, would all but vanish as part of a proposal Gov. Deval Patrick filed last week to streamline public housing management operations. The proposal would consolidate local housing authorities across the state into six regional housing authorities, reportedly saving more than $10 million a year in salaries and administrative costs. 

On Thursday, a speeding car injured two construction workers near 180 Hartwell Road at around 8:35 a.m. The two men were transported with injuries to Lahey Clinic, and Hartwell Road was closed for several hours while police worked to clear the scene. The driver responsible for the crash was cited with speeding.
