The Franklin Town Board of Aldermen met last night for their regular meeting for May 2014. I have posted the video I recorded above and the public agenda, the press kit and a searchable copy of the Town Manager's Budget Message to the Aldermen below. You may read the play by play I posted on the Macon Media Facebook Page.


Near the end of the meeting, the Aldermen went into a closed session that lasted about nine minutes. When they came out, the Aldermen passed a resolution to acquire some property for a sum of money to settle a suit filed by the John W. Mitchell Jr Revocable Trust had filed against the Town of Franklin in Superior Court for the amount of $180,300. I have a copy of that resolution below the public agenda. I have embedded a copy of the agenda packet that members of the board and the media receive. I have included a link for you to download a copy for your personal records if you so wish.
