FM #810 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 810 in the series.
This session of the radio show shares the special combination of “Talk Franklin” with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen, and Town Council Quarterbacking with Chair Tom Mercer.
Talk Franklin was on the schedule for Friday, and given the double meeting of the Town Council for the budget hearings, it made sense to cover our Town Council Quarterbacking session after both public hearings, hence combining them together.
Lily Rivera, Marketing & Communication Specialists joins us on the Friday before the Memorial Day weekend to recap the budget, town state of affairs and look out to the near term events coming in June, Farmers Market opens June 3rd, and then the Strawberry Festival and the Franklin For All booth on June 10 kicks off ArtWALK and the Ladybug Trail.
The conversation runs about 44 minutes. Let’s listen into my conversation with Jamie, Tom and Lily.
