Franklin TV: "More Meetings"

More Open, More Engagement.
by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director 03/07/2021

Per Massachusetts Open Meeting Laws, many communities have their government meetings televised on a dedicated cable channel. In Franklin, it’s Town Hall TV on Comcast 11 and Verizon 29.
 
Back in 2019 BP – (Before Pandemic) we covered the following meetings regularly: 
  • M - Planning Board
  • T -  School Committee
  • W -  Town Council
  • T - Conservation Commission – or – Zoning Board of Appeals Finance Committee

Recently, we’ve added:
  • Economic Development Committee Town Administrator’s Review Budget Subcommittee
  • Community Preservation Committee – Their inaugural meeting was last week.  
  • Candidates’ Forum – Special meetings for Town Council Elections 
  • Agriculture Commission – May begin soon with a limited series.
Check this week’s schedule of live and replay meetings on our last page.

Today we also stream the government channel meetings live on our website. Just click on the Town Hall TV logo. Past meetings are searchable on demand as well.

Adding our live Zoom connection has been a real game chan– um, a meeting changer. Our government meetings, whether originating in town Chambers or remotely, Zoom makes citizen participation possible and convenient. What you see over Zoom is very much like what you see at home on TV, but you can participate easily. Just remember your Zoom etiquette. Please keep your microphone muted until you are addressed by the meeting chairperson during the public portion of the meeting. Place your computer in a quiet location that is well lit. Note that because you can see everyone – everyone can also see you.

And – as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm. 
And, thank you for watching.

"if cable franchising fees went away. It would be a major loss to all communities"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"Get ready to say goodbye to some local cable channel broadcasts of government meetings, elections and other town events. 
The Federal Communications Commission is moving toward adopting a new rule that community television groups say would gut funding for public, educational and governmental channels. 
“The loser, if that ends up happening, will be the local taxpayer, the local cable subscriber and the everyday citizens who rely on access to public information that’s provided through these programs,” said Geoffrey C. Beckwith, executive director and CEO of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. 
The proposed rule, moving quickly toward regulatory approval, would allow major cable companies, such as Verizon FiOS, Comcast Xfinity and RCN, to limit the amount of spending for community programming that has been negotiated as part of their licensing agreements with cities and towns."

As the snow continues to fall, one of the most common storm-related issues is a power outage, which can affect your Fios®  services.  If that happens, here are some quick tips to get you back up and running.
  1. To fix most issues, unplug and plug back in your Verizon equipment.
  2. Didn't work?  You may have to reset your Optical Network Terminal (ONT) by following these instructions.
  3. Still no luck?  Visit verizon.com/Outage or the My Fios app via a mobile device for answers to common questions or to submit a repair request. 

Don't have the My Fios app?  Download it now.

We hope you stay warm and stay safe this winter.

Please Note: If you have fiber-optic voice service, your service requires electricity in order to work. In the event of a power outage, you won't be able to make or receive calls, including calls to 911, unless you use an alternative like a cell phone. If you have an alarm system it may not be able to contact its central monitoring station in the event of a power outage. Depending on the Verizon equipment installed at your home, backup power may be provided by a Battery Backup Unit (BBU) that uses a 12-volt battery or a PowerReserve device that uses 12 D-cell batteries that you provide.

Attention Students: Open Call for Verizon Innovative Learning App Challenge Submissions Now Open to Franklin Residents


Verizon Issues Call to Massachusetts Students for the Best Problem-Solving App Ideas

Fifth Annual Verizon Innovative Learning App Challenge Opens for New Submissions;
Deadline is November 18

Fifth Annual Verizon Innovative Learning App Challenge
Fifth Annual Verizon Innovative Learning App Challenge

WHAT: The Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge – the no-coding-skills-needed contest that gives middle and high school students a chance to bring their problem-solving app ideas to life – is now accepting new app ideas for the 2016-2017 competition.

Winning student teams will be chosen from each state, earning a $5,000 grant for their school or organization and free tablets for each team member. Then the Best In State teams will compete for the ultimate prizes: an additional $15,000 for their organizations, and chance to turn their app ideas into real, working smartphone apps that will be made available for download.

Now in its fifth year, thousands of students across the U.S. have participated in the app challenge - gathering teams, dreaming up ideas, and creating concepts for mobile apps that could solve problems in their schools and communities.

Past winners have been featured at the White House Science Fair and even gone on to sell their completed apps for cash.

Students can submit ideas from Aug. 1 - Nov. 18, 2016, and the winners will be named in January and February 2017.

For more information on how to register for the Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge, or to download the completed apps, visit www.verizon.com/appchallenge. Follow us on Twitter (@VerizonGiving) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/verizonfoundation).

WHY: The app challenge, part of Verizon Innovative Learning, was developed to give all students, regardless of their technology experience or access to technology, a chance to make a difference, and to help spark their interest in STEM subjects and careers.

Over the past 10 years, for example, STEM jobs have grown three times faster than other jobs. STEM jobs are expected to grow by 1 million by 2022 to a total of more than 9 million jobs.

The app challenge provides hands-on, experiential learning that can equip students with the in-demand skills of the future and empower them to envision brighter futures for themselves as business owners, app inventors, coders, technology professionals and more.

The 2016-17 Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge is open for new submission August 1 – November 18, 2016.

Verizon: Important storm-related updates regarding your Verizon FiOS services



Header
Dear Valued Verizon Customer,
This time of year, we maintain a particularly watchful eye for winter storms and the many inconveniences they bring. As the upcoming nor'easter bears down, we want you to know that we're ready. Whether brief or lengthy, a power outage is one of the most common storm-related occurrences. Knowing that, we have already deployed resources to help our customers that could be impacted.
What should I do in the event of a power outage?
Visit verizon.com/outage from your smartphone, or other wireless device to:
Track current outages
Find answers to equipment repair and backup service questions
Create a "Repair Request" if needed
Do I need to reset anything once power is restored?
Most issues can be resolved by unplugging and plugging your Verizon equipment back in (Set Top Box, Router, etc). If that doesn't resolve your issues, you may need to restart your Optical Network Terminal (ONT) by following these instructions. For additional troubleshooting assistance, download our In-Home Agent application.
Thank you for choosing Verizon. We hope you have an enjoyable and safe winter.
Sincerely,
Your Verizon Team

MY VERIZON SUPPORT PASSWORD HELP
Important FiOS® TV Content Information

Dear Valued Verizon Customer:

STATION NAME

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Important storm-related updates regarding your Verizon FiOS service

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: "Verizon Services"
Date: Feb 8, 2013 11:40 PM
Subject: Important storm-related updates regarding your Verizon FiOS service


Verizon


Dear Valued Verizon Customer,

In recent months, the East Coast has certainly had its fair share of significant weather events. As the latest winter storm unfolds, Verizon has deployed resources to support areas that could be impacted. Unfortunately, power outages are the most common weather-related issue our customers experience.  If you should lose power, below are some important tips about your FiOS® service: 
  • In the event of a power outage, your FiOS® Internet and/or TV service will not be available until your power is restored
     
  • If you have fiber-based voice service or FiOS® Digital Voice, the Battery Backup Unit (BBU) that Verizon installed to support your Optical Network Terminal (ONT) supplies up to eight (8) hours of corded phone service
     
  • Should the battery in your BBU cease to power your corded phone, you may still be able to make an emergency phone call by pressing the blue Battery Emergency Use button on your BBU. This should enable your ONT to reboot and provide up to one hour of additional talk time
     
  • Once power is restored, you may need to reset your ONT or reconnect/replace the battery to restore your FiOS service(s)

To Reset Your Optical Network Terminal (ONT)
  1. Unplug the electrical power cord of your Battery Backup Unit from the wall outlet
  2. Wait one minute and then plug the cord back into the wall and see if the ONT resets. If the ONT resets, then your FiOS service(s) should come back online. If not, please try to reconnect the battery according to the directions below
To Reconnect (Or Replace) The Battery In Your Battery Backup Unit (BBU)
  1. Unplug the electrical power cord of your BBU from the wall outlet
  2. Open the battery cabinet on the BBU (you may need a screwdriver to do this)
  3. Disconnect the battery leads and wait 10 seconds. Reconnect the battery leads
  4. Put the battery cabinet back on and then plug the power cord back into the wall and see if the ONT resets. If the ONT resets, then your FiOS service(s) should come back online. If not, you may need to replace the battery that Verizon provided.

For up-to-date information throughout the storm, please visit verizon.com/outage from your computer, smartphone, or wireless device. This site will allow you to create a repair ticket, find additional help for troubleshooting or restoring your service, and download our Verizon In-Home Agent which provides you with fast, easy solutions. 

Please stay safe, and thank you for being a loyal Verizon customer.

Sincerely,

Your Verizon Team
