On Tuesday, Nov. 5, voters in Franklin will have an opportunity to change the Treasurer-Collector position from elected to appointed. The Town of Franklin can join surrounding towns who appoint their Treasurers and Collectors with Milford and Plainville being the lone exceptions; Milford is looking to make their positions appointed.This is the binding question on the ballot next Tuesday. The second or non-binding question is whether Franklin should consider a mayoral form of government. Technically we already do. In any case, it would take years to bring about the change if the decision were to go forward.
