Trash and Recycling Fee Increase - Proposal - First Reading

The full agenda can be found on the Town of Franklin page

The agenda can also be found in one LARGE PDF file (~59MB - can take time to download)

This was forecast in January. Readers may recall my "Watch List' for 2020

Exhibit one: the Town Council's proposed 'goals and objectives' doc fortunately captures most of these in the first Fiscal section:

● Approval of Annual Capital Improvement Plan -- FY20 and FY21
● Approval of a balanced Operating Budget -- FY21 and FY22
o Closely monitor expected budget shortfalls in both FY21 and FY22
● Establish Ad Hoc Subcommittee to evaluate storm water fee analysis
o Present analysis to the full Council
 Determine Water rate increase for FY20/FY21, notably for the water treatment plant and wells loan package
 Determine Sewer rate increase, if needed, for FY20/FY21
● Seek new borrowing capacity for municipal and school building capital improvements and sidewalks
● Discussion on the Community Preservation Act
 Discussion on Trash & Recycling account
● Continue to ask for OPEB solutions with state officials
● Explore new revenue options, generally
