FM #260 Talk Franklin with Jamie Hellen and Anne Marie Tracey 5/01/20 (audio)

FM #260= This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 260 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 about the extension of the closure by the State until May 18 and the re-opening advisory work underway at the State level, as well as within the Town departments. The Board of Health had issued the facial covering order effective Apr 29. During our conversation, Jamie updated that Gov Baker had just issued one statewide effective May 6.

The combined Department Spotlight on the Finance and Treasurer/Collector operations. The move to virtual work including the internal processing of the online payments via UniPay.

Other topics covered include
  • Pink bag, clothing recycling returned
  • Budget subcommittee
  • School Committee approved their initial budget
  • Scavenger hunt – photo contest
  • Friday night lights to recognize the FHS graduates

The recording runs almost about 59 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Anne Marie
