Franklin Town Board of Aldermen
December 2016 Meeting

The Franklin Town Board of Aldermen will be meeting tonight at 7 pm in the lower level of town hall at 95 East Main Street. Due to the uncertainty of whether or not the County Commissioner meeting that has been scheduled to start at 6:30 pm, this meeting will not be webcast live. A video will be posted in the morning and added here so you can see and hear exactly what transpired during the meeting.

Macon Media has not received an agenda packet for this meeting. One will be posted here once it is obtained. The public agenda is posted below.
