FM #420 Town Council Quarterbacking - 12/17/20 (audio)

FM #420 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 420 in the series. 

This shares my conversation with Town Council Chair Tom Mercer. This is the second of a series of conversations meant to provide a recap of the prior Council meeting. Akin to one of the many sports post-game analysis broadcasts we are familiar with in New England,  this would be a discussion focused on the Franklin Town Council meeting: ok, what just happened? What does it mean for Franklin residents and taxpayers?

‘regular business’

  • Lot lines clean up changes continue

  • Cable fund transfer authorized

  • GPS lease/purchase approved


‘Important business’

  • Community Preservation Committee bylaw approved

  • Authorization of emergency funds for Water Treatment plant billing (replaces spear phishing funds)

The show notes include links to the meeting agenda and associated documents.

Our conversation runs about 37 minutes, so let’s listen in.
