FM #508-509-510 - Town Council Mtg - 04/07/21 - (3 part audio)

FM #508-509-510 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 508-509-510 in the series. 

This session shares the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, Apr 7, 2021. 

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

I’ve split the almost three hour minute meeting into three logical segments:

  • First - covers the opening through the public hearing on the street acceptances (49 minutes)
  • Second - covers the DPW presentation and subsequent discussion with the Council members  (37 mins)
  • Third - covers the long list of Legislation for Action through the close of the meeting (1 hour 20 minutes)

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 Apr 7, 2021
