Shall the city known as the Town of Franklin approve the charter amendment proposed by the Franklin Town Council in Resolution 13-30 summarized below?
The proposed amendment eliminates the provision for election of the Town Treasurer-Collector and adds a provision for appointment of the Town Treasurer-Collector by the Town Administrator, with input from a selection committee and ratification by the Town Council; the amendment takes effect if and when approved by the voters, except that the incumbent Treasurer-Collector shall serve the remainder of his current term.
This seems like a good one to do a poll or survey question on. If you are reading this via email, please come to the Franklin Matters webpage: http://www.franklinmatters.org/ You should find the survey question in the top right corner and submit your choice!
The survey will stay open for 2 weeks to allow sufficient time for folks to have their say given summer vacation time, etc.
