Session Notes:

This internet radio show or podcast is number 61-1 in the series for Franklin Matters.

This special recording is from the Finance Committee meeting on Tuesday March 23, 2010. It was held in the Training Room on the 3rd floor of the Municipal Bldg. The School Committee meeting was being held in the Council Chambers so there was no planned cable video production.

I did manage to broadcast the video and record that however, the audio feed was silent. Doesn't do much good for folks to sit and watch about an hour of folks sitting around a table and not being able to hear what they are saying.

Fortunately, I did have a separate audio recording to capture the meeting and I draw on that to share the meeting here.

The meeting will be split into four sections:

1 – to cover the opening and the discussion around the first appropriation for the Board of Assessors

2 – to cover the Parmenter Solar Panel project

3 – to cover the capital budget which was split into two votes, for for 2,009,000 for the overall capital needs of the town and the second setting aside 100,000 into a fund to accrue for the eventual replacement purchase of a new fire engine.

4 – the final section will cover the discussion on the overall FY 2011 budget schedule, additional questions from the committee members, and then the closing of the meeting.
