FM #623 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 623 in the series.
This shares my conversation with Town Council Chair Tom Mercer. This is one of a series of conversations meant to provide a recap of the prior Council meeting. Akin to one of the many sports post-game analysis broadcasts we are familiar with in New England, this would be a discussion focused on the Franklin Town Council meeting of October 6, 2021:
ok, what just happened?
What does it mean for Franklin residents and taxpayers?
We cover the following key topics
a. Franklin Cultural Council - 2021 Cultural Fest
a. Susan Younis - Municipal Affordable Housing Trust
b. Candice Narsasian - Cultural District Committee
c. Anne Bergen - Franklin TV Board of Directors
d. Ken Norman - Franklin TV Board of Directors
a. Franklin School Department Update to Town Council: Dr. Sara Ahern, Superintendent of Schools, Miriam Goodman, Business Manager
10. LEGISLATION FOR ACTION
a. Resolution 21-54: A Resolution Adopting the Town of Franklin 2021 Housing Production Plan (Motion to Approve Resolution 21-54 - Majority Vote)
The show notes include links to the meeting agenda and associated documents.
