FM #371-372-373 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 371-372-373 in the series.
This session shares the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, Oct 21, 2020. The meeting was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.
I’ve split the full three hour plus meeting into three segments:
- First - covers the opening through the appointments and pinning ceremonies, including the presentation/discussion on nationalGRID and their response to power outages during storms
- Second - covers the presentation/discussion on the Beaver St interceptor, which could become the largest public works project the Town has taken on other than building a school (50 mins)
- Third - covers Subcommittee reports through legislation for Action and ultimately to the close of the meeting (64 minutes)
The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda and to the presentation document.
Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of Oct 21, 2020.
