This session shares part of the Franklin, MA Town Council meeting held on Wednesday, December 1, 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 two hour into two (2) logical segments:

  • First - covers the opening, Tax Rate Hearing including approval of the several resolutions required to complete setting the rate for FY 2022 (~49 mins)
  • Second - covers the annual Snow presentation and discussion, Council Comments, and Council votes to enter Executive Session, not to return to open meeting. (~ 1 hour and 11minutes)

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda. Let’s listen to this segment of the Town Council meeting of Dec 1, 2021
