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:

  • Welcome back
  • Friday 13th, not superstitious

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

MAPC forum and recommendations

The recording runs about 38 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie as we “Talk Franklin”.
