Town Council Meeting - 10/06/21 - Three audio segments available

FM #624-625-626 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 624-625-626 in the series. 

This session shares part of the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, October 6, 2021. 

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: members of the Town Council and Town Administration personnel, the Police retirement and promotion individuals, along with their guest and family members were in the Council Chambers, some members of the public participated in person, some via the Zoom conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

I’ve split the just about two hours and forty minutes ( 2:40 total elapsed time) into three (3) logical segments:

  • First - covers the opening, citizen comments, recognition for the Cultural Council and four appointments (~28 mins)

  • Second - covers the Franklin Public Schools presentation and Q&A session (~ 87 minutes) 

  • Third - covers the Legislation for Action, Council Comments and meeting close. (~ 46 minutes)

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda. Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of Oct 6, 2021
