Public Comment

There have been instances when meeting dates or locations were changed at the last minute. To keep the public informed of last minute changes, going forward Agendas will be sent out to the Franklin Recreation email list. The town is will forward the Agenda to their email list as well.


A second meeting for the countywide recreation group will be held on 3/14 Swanton at 5:30.


Linda from Swanton Rec gave us a printer and some cartridges.


Discussion about possible storage solutions, perhaps a trailer or cargo box would be an economical option. Itís possible that with available grants from Lowes and/or Home Depot, and monetary and time donations from community members, a storage shed could be built in the near future and without a lot of effort by any one individual.
