FM #185 - Plastic Waste Reduction approved to move to Town Council

FM #185

This internet radio show or podcast is number 185 in the series for Franklin Matters.

This recording shares Economic Development Subcommittee meeting held on Wednesday, Dec 4, 2019.

One item was on the agenda for this session, the FHS student proposal on “Plastic Waste Reduction.” Yes, this is the revised proposal name as this is the first step to address the plastic shopping bags, then as time and resources permit, address other plastic items.

With a new Town Council elected in November 2019, there was a slight re-organization of this subcommittee. Councilor Matt Kelly is no longer a member and he has been replaced by Councilor Andy Bissanti. Councilor Melanie Hamblin now is Chair for this subcommittee. Councilors Glenn Jones and Eamon McCarthy Earls remain as members.

After going around in discussion, the measure was voted to bring forward to the Town Council for the Dec 18 meeting. The vote was 3-1 (Earls voting no).

The meeting runs approx 38 minutes.
