FM #543 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 543 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares my "Talk Franklin" conversation with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen and Marketing and Communications Specialist Anne Marie Tracey. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about: 

  • Budget and upcoming Town Council hearings 5/26-27

  • Housing plan out for public comment

  • Maple Hill right of first refusal clock started

  • Pop up grant received

  • ArtWALK Celebration June 11-12-13

Links to the key topics covered here are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 31 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Anne Marie.
