FM #347 Talk Franklin with Jamie Hellen - 9/11/20 (audio)

FM #347 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 347 in the series. 

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

We talk about: 

  • Election processing
  • Stormwater map
  • Budget subcommittee – Town Council meeting
  • Re-opening: Restaurant extension
  • Beaver St credit card payments

Good stuff in the news

  • Police on wbz TV
  • Students on wbur radio

The recording runs about 49 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie.  Audio file =
