Due to tomorrow being election day, I don't know if I'll be able to have the video ready tomorrow. It may be a day or two before I can get that done.

The Franklin Town Board of Aldermen will meet tonight at 7pm and I will be there to cover the meeting live via Twitter. You may follow along on the embedded widget below or on Twitter by searching for the Twitter hashtag #MaconGov. I will be simulcasting the meeting on my
@WPIG and @ThunderPig accounts.

Of particular interest to me is whether or not the town will issue an apology to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI), or ᏣᎳᎩᏱ ᏕᏣᏓᏂᎸᎩ, for a perceived insult to the tribe by spraying weed killer on the Nikwasi Indian Mound as part of their preparations to plant Lovegrass on the mound so that the costs of maintenance swill be reduced.

I covered the meeting where this was discussed and here is a clip of that discussion:

The complete meeting video is available by clicking here.

I don't see what the fuss is about, but then again, I knew the grass would have to be killed before they put Love Grass or whatever they decide to use to cap the mound. I think that most people didn't have a clue as to what was going on in the Town Board meetings.
