Franklin Town Council To Give Update Tonight

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Franklin Town Council will be given updates tonight on the CoronaVirus impact on the town and how that may impact the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget.  Preliminary numbers at the Councils’ last meeting, revealed the COVID-19 pandemic, is leading to a drop in local tax receipts, that for the next Fiscal Year, could reach $1.4 million.  Franklin Town Administrator Jamie Hellen saying this is just an estimate, as the amount will be revised moving forward, as the town learns how much it will be receiving in State Aid in the next budget. Also on the agenda tonight will be a discussion around the Franklin Food Pantry, now serving 505 families and 184 Seniors, handing out an average of 25-hundred pounds of food each Tuesday and Friday. The Pantry is looking for volunteers to serve on their Capital Campaign Committee, to raise money after recently purchasing a new building to expand operations the Pantry survives on private donations, with no town or state funding. Tonight’s meeting will also include the official designation of the Town, as a “Purple Heart Community” honoring the service and sacrifice of those Franklin residents, who were awarded the Purple Heart, while serving in our Nation’s Wars.
