The Franklin Town Board met tonight in a special called meeting to discuss adding a new Assistant Chief position to the Franklin Fire Department. After a very brief discussion, the board voted 4-1 to deny the request and directed the Town manager to begin advertising for a new Fire Chief. Alderman Farrell Jamison was the lone no vote and Alderman Billy Mashburn was not at the meeting.

The entire meeting from start to finish lasted about eight minutes.

A copy of the meeting agenda is posted below and a copy of the Town of Franklin Personnel Policy will be added below that once the Town Manager emails a copy to Macon Media, which will probably be sometime in the morning.
