FM #153 - Town Council Meeting - Nov 28, 2018 (audio)

FM #153

This internet radio show or podcast is number 153 in the series for Franklin Matters.

This recording is the only one available for the Town Council meeting held Wednesday, Nov 28, 2018. Due to technical difficulties, Franklin TV was not able to record or broadcast the meeting.

You can follow along with the agenda that can be found online

Or you can use my notes taken live during the meeting that can also be found online:
  • Opening - citizens comments and two new fire chiefs sworn in

  • Tax rate hearing and approval for rate set at 14.66 an increase of .01 from the 14.65 rate set for FY 2018

  • The Snow Report provided by the DPW. They highlighted that a shortage of contractors may affect the timeliness of snow clearing operations this winter.

  • Legislation for action including the approval of offer for Town Administrator to the current Deputy, Jamie Hellen

  • From the Town Administrators report to closing of the meeting

The total meeting recording runs just about 2 hours. Without further ado, here is the audio recording.


This podcast is my public service effort for Franklin but I can't do it alone. I can use your help.

How can you help?

In particular, if you have an interest in real estate, zoning or construction, I would like someone to follow the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals and Conservation Commission meetings. I’ll provide the guidance on note taking and sharing. You need to bring an inquisitive and open mind and willingness to learn and share.

  • If you can use the information that you find here, please tell your friends and neighbors.
  • If you don't like this, please let me know.

Through this feedback loop we can continue to make improvements.
Thank you for listening.
