This internet radio show or podcast is number 166 in the series for Franklin Matters.
This recording shares the special Town Council meeting held on June 12, 2019. As I was coming down the stairs from the Economic Development Subcommittee meeting on the third floor of the Municipal Building, I realized that the Town Council was gathering for a meeting that had not yet come to my radar.
|Town administrator Jamie Hellen describes the search process|
|new Fire Chief James G McLaughlin listens intently|
A quick search showed that this was a ‘special’ meeting just called for the primary purpose of allowing the Town Council to approve the appointment of James G McLaughlin as the Fire Chief.
The search to replace Chief McCarragher (now retired) I knew had been underway. It turns out that apparently the search finalized since the Council meeting on the 12th and since the new chief was going to be away for the next Council meeting (6/26), they called a ‘special’ meeting for this purpose.
Without further ado, here is the audio recording (approx 40 minutes).

This podcast is my public service effort for Franklin but I can't do it alone. I can always 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 help us by following the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and or the Conservation Commission meetings. I’ll provide the guidance on note taking and sharing. You need to bring an inquisitive, open mind, and willingness to learn and share.
