Franklin, MA: Town Council - Budget Hearing #2 - May 25, 2017

The published agenda and documents for the Franklin Town Council meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 25, 2017. This is the second of two Town Council budget hearings. The Finance Committee reviewed the budget department by department in a series of three meetings in April.

If you really want the inside details on the budget, review the notes and video replay from the Finance Committee meetings. The Town Council version of the budget hearings have been a simple reading of the budget line items and amounts and then occasionally a 'hold' for a specific items of interest to one or more Councilors. What used to be rather informative sessions have disappeared the past several years.
