FM #254 Talk Franklin - Hellen and Tracey 4/24/20 (audio)

FM #254 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 254 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares my "Talk Franklin" conversation with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen and Marketing and Communications Specialist Anne Marie Tracey. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talked to recap the Town Council special meeting on how and when to re-open for business, the upcoming Board of Health meeting to review the current stand on masks, the Economic Development meeting getting into inclusionary zoning, the ‘spring training’ approach to the budget with a meeting on May 4, and the Department Spotlight to highlight some of the good work being done by the departments in Town.

The recording runs almost about 65 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Anne Marie
