FM #572 & #573 - Town Council meeting of 06/23/21 in 2 parts (audio)

FM #572-3 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 572-3 in the series. 

This session shares the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. 

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: members of the Town Council and Town Administration personnel were in the Council Chambers, some of the public participated in person, some were remote via the Zoom conference bridge, as we move to come out of this pandemic period.

I’ve split the almost 3 hour meeting into two logical segments:

  • First - covers the opening with 2 recognitions, 2 licenses transactions, and then the discussion on the Open Meeting Law complaint (~1:09 mins)

  • Second - covers the legislation for action and the balance of the meeting until they enter Executive Session. They do return about 30 minutes later but that is not part of this recording as I did not stick around. (~1:27 minutes)

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

Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of June 23, 2021
