This session of the radio show shares the Finance Committee meeting held on Wednesday, Oct 26, 2022. 

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: 6 members of the Finance Committee were in the Council Chambers along with some of the public, 1 member was remote along with some members the public via conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period. 

The primary discussion was with Kevin Doyle, Assessor and Chris Feeley, Chair of the Board of assessors as the assessment process was covered at a high level. How are residential homes assessed? How are commercial/industrial properties assessed? 

Interesting fact, the assessment process produces about 60% of the Town of Franklin revenue.

The meeting recording runs about seventy minutes, so let’s listen to the Finance Committee meeting Oct 26, 2022.
