FM #798 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 798 in the series.
This session of the radio show shares my "Talk Franklin" conversation with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen. We had our conversation via the Zoom Conference Bridge.
Conversation around the following topics with a common thread of peaks and valleys, journey more important than the destination:
So much good happening
Fire dept ISO Class 1
Clean audit report
AAA bond rating
DPW water conservation award
Where do you go from here? The challenge is greater to maintain this
Budget through Finance Committee
Next up Town Council (May 25, May 26)
MAPC forum and recommendations
The recording runs about 38 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie as we “Talk Franklin”.
