Franklin To Meet Tonight On Bylaws
  

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Franklin Town Council will meet tonight and discuss a new Bylaw dealing with the creation of a Stormwater Utility Enterprise Fund and a Bylaw amendment, creating a Plastic Bag Ban for the town of Franklin. The Stormwater Management Program is designed to collect and treat stormwater, to protect property and promote the health and safety of the public. Residents and Businesses would pay into the fund to pay for the federally mandated program the cost could reach upwards of $60 million. Town Administrator Jamie Hellen says NO fee will be set tonight an ad hoc committee will recommend any fee structure once the fund is approved by the Town Council. Council members tonight will also vote to proceed with a plastic checkout bag ban Administrator Hellen is providing the Council with a version the Town of Medfield has in place at this time. The purpose is to eliminate the usage of thin-film, single use plastic bags at checkout, at all retailers in the town if the bylaw is ultimately passed, it would go into effect July 1st. Town Council tonight will also consider reinstating a snow and ice removal bylaw, that was repealed in 2017 and go over a draft set of biennial goals a list of projects and initiatives for the Council's consideration.
