Town Council Meeting - 01/19/22 - 3 parts audio - 1 part all you need to know about DPW

FM #704-705-706 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 704-705-706 in the series. 

This session shares part of the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, January 19, 2022. 

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 five minutes ( 2:05 total elapsed time) into three (3) logical segments:

  • First - covers the opening, recognition of three Police Dept individuals (~29 mins)

audio file ->

  • Second - covers the DPW budget overview and Q&A session (~ 1:07 minutes)

  • Third - covers the Legislation for Action, Council Comments and meeting close (~ 29 minutes) audio file ->

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda. Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of Jan 19, 2022
