FM #598 & 599 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, numbers 598 & 599 in the series.
This session shares part of the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: members of the Town Council and Town Administration personnel, many of the Police promotion and new hires, along with their guest and family members were in the Council Chambers, some members of the public participated via the Zoom conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.
I’ve split the just over 3.5 hour session (total elapsed time) into 2 logical segments:
First - covers the opening, Police promotions, new hires and the Public hearing on the downtown zoning item. The break after the police ceremonies was excluded from this audio. (~59 mins)
Second - covers the balance of the meeting, entry to Executive Session, and then the return to open meeting 40 minutes later (~1 hour and 8 minutes)
The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda. Let’s listen to the Town Council meeting of Sep 1, 2021
