LIve reporting: from Town Administrator report to closing

Sandy Fanning to retire next week
water ban still in effect; small fire at DPW
have found the source that it was attributed to lightning causing a hardware failure; tank is lined, water needs to be replenished before turning the ban off

the people have responded very well, water main breaks also contributed to the fill rate; response to alarms was key testement to avoiding larger damages; est couple of hundred thousand dollars
once taken off, it will be broadcast

State budget sent to Governor this week, some small amounts in there for Franklin, assuming it makes it though the Governor's signature; education and local aid funding was a major item; Governor has ten days to adjust or veto

without their efforts, we could have been looking at deeper cuts
