Alton Sutton Re-appointed to ABC Board


/center>


Alton Sutton was re-appointed for another three-year term on the ABC Board by a vote of 6-0 after a philosophical discussion about whether or not the Town of Franklin should let the public know when the terms of members of the various advisory boards are ending so that interested members of the public may apply or were going to be open for insiders only. The discussion was punted to the February 22nd Strategic Planning Meeting.
