Here's Five Things.
Good morning, here are five things to know today:
Mayor Calls For Action on Dilapidated DPW Yard, Union Grows Frustated: Mayor Michael McGlynn is looking to immediately address building issues at the city's public works yard and may appeal to the state for permission to do so on an emergency basis. Six garage bays have been condemned since 2009, but McGlynn said workers sometimes access them anyway. In addition, other neighboring bays will be shut down, McGlynn said after a tour of the yard Friday morning. "These must be torn down," he said.
Weather: There's a 30 percent chance of rain today with highs in the mid 80s, according to the National Weather Service. Similar weather is expected tomorrow.
Around the Region: A microburst rips Arlington, Somerville IKEA plans squashed and a Red Sox slugger visits Melrose. Those are few of the top recent headlines from around the region.
