FM #554 - Town Council Budget Hearing #2 - 05/27/21 (audio)

FM #554 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 554 in the series. 

This session shares the Franklin, MA Town Council budget hearing #2 held on Thursday, May 27, 2021. 

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

The second of two budget hearings for the FY 2022 town budget. This session runs less than the first night (only an hour and 43 minutes) as the Council gets to finish up questions from the prior night, vote to approve the $138M operating budget, and take care of a couple of other legislative items.

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda. Let’s listen to the Town Council meeting of May 27, 2021
