FM #443 Town Council Mtg - P1 of 2 - 01/20/21 (audio)

FM #443 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 443 in the series.

This session shares the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, Jan 20, 2021.

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: members of the Town Council, selected guests, and Town Administration personnel were in the Council Chambers, the public was remote via Zoom conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

I’ve split the full two hour thirty minutes meeting into two logical segments and almost equal segments:

  • First - covers the opening through the Subcommittee reports. Includes the public hearing on the new alcohol license, and on the street acceptances (1 hour and 16 minutes)
  • Second - covers Legislation for Action items (including the technically off topic rant) through to the close of the meeting (1 hour and 16 mins)

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda including documents released for this agenda.

Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of Jan 20, 2021. Audio file =
