FM #334 Economic Development Comm Meeting Not 8/20/20 (Audio)

FM #334 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 334 in the series. 
This session shares the Economic Development Subcommittee meeting that was scheduled for Thursday, August 20, 2020. The meeting was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Due to lack of quorum, the meeting never officially opened, all discussion was relevant but not official. The Chair, Melanie Hamblen, was present from the beginning along with multiple Town Administration staff. One other member of the committee (Jones) joined about 26 minutes into the recording but they still lacked one of the other two members (Earls, Bissanti) to make an official meeting.

The recording runs just about 48 minutes, so let’s listen to the discussion from the unofficial meeting of the Economic Development Subcommittee.

The next meeting is targeted for Sep 2 starting approx 5:00 or 5:30 PM effectively before the Town Council meeting, the same night.

We are now producing this in collaboration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio ( or 102.9 on the Franklin area radio dial.
