The latest "Talk Franklin" episode is ready for your listening pleasure

FM #639 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 639 in the series. 

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

We talk about: 

  • Finance Committee meeting
    • Human Resources presentation by Karen Bratt
    • Veterans tax rate increase
    • Senior Workoff program increase
      • Both pending approval by Town Council
    • ARPA accounting
  • Oct 20 – Town Council
    • New precinct plan per 2020 Census data
  • Maple Hill purchase finalized

Links to the key topics covered here are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 23 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Lily.
