Plastic Bag Prohibition Bylaw
Please find the letter sent to Franklin businesses regarding the recently adopted Plastic Bag Prohibition Bylaw here
Note: This bylaw was passed after two readings and a long process of effort by the FHS students who picked up where their classmates efforts left off in 2016-2017. Kudos to the students for their civic engagement in a constructive and informative manner.
From my notes reported live during the Feb 12, 2020 meeting of the Town Council
