These slides accompany the podcast FM #50. Give me about 10 minutes and I'll give you what matters in Franklin, MA. These slides help prepare for the Town Council meeting on Dec 2, 2009 and the important tax classification hearing.

  • The audio for the appendix did not get recorded. My mistake. The text that should have been recorded can be found on Franklin Matters.

  5. 7. To reduce the residential rate by $1, the commercial/industrial folks would see an increase of $4. A split tax will not do anything to resolve Franklin’s problems. A split tax will only shift a share of the pie from one group of taxpayers to another. Franklin needs to GROW the pie!
