FM #426 - Franklin Matters Q&A Session - Dec 17, 2020 (audio)

FM #426 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 426 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares the Franklin Matters Q&A session held by the Senior Center on Thursday, Dec 17, 2020. The session was conducted virtually via Zoom conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

As I mention during the intro, there is no formal presentation for these sessions. I have at least a couple of things in mind that have changed since the prior meeting to review if folks are interested. We start with your questions, answer those, fill in appropriate background info and connections to other topics where applicable.

The Town Council and Rep Jeff Roy had held their coffee hour that morning. One of the questions to open with was around the Community Preservation Committee legislation that was just approved by the Council at their meeting the prior Wednesday night (12/16/20).

We also talk about the spear phishing incident, storm water utility fee, and the tax rate hearing before getting into the schedule for the next session, Jan 17 at 1:00 PM.

The recording runs just about an hour so let’s listen in.  Audio file =
