This session shares part of the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, November 10, 2021.
The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: members of the Town Council and Town Administration personnel 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 one hour and fifty minutes (1:50 total elapsed time) into three (3) logical segments:
First - covers the opening, Town Clerk swearing in, Town Council swearing, organization vote to select Chair, Vice-chair and Clerk, citizen comments, appointment approvals of four for the Cultural Council and multiple license transactions (~34 mins)
Second - covers the Open Meeting Law, Ethics, and Records presentation and Q&A session led by Attorney Mark Cerel (~ 43 minutes)
Third - covers the Legislation for Action, Council Comments, then they enter Executive Session not to return to open meeting (~ 33 minutes)
The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda. Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of Nov 10, 2021
