Brutus Cantoreggi, director of Public Works, has announced New England Rain Barrel will be holding the annual rain barrel sale.
Orders may be placed until May 8, 2009.  Pick up day is Wednesday, May 13 at 150 Emmons St. from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.  

Rain barrels will be offered to Franklin residents at  the retail price of $72.50 , instead of the regularly price of $119.95, by The New England Rain Barrel Company.

The rain barrels are made from 55-gallon blue plastic recycled containers. The barrels have a 6-inch diameter inlet opening covered with a screened louver to keep insects and debris out. The barrels have two brass spigots, one to connect a hose for watering and the other for overflow. They feature a 5-foot hose with a shutoff valve. Multiple barrels can be linked together for additional capacity.
