Can’t help but take this good-natured jab at Franklin City Hall.
Apparently someone (or more than one person) thought it was a good idea to schedule a Franklin Common Council meeting on November 3, 2020. That would be Election Day. A major Election Day.
Now I could be wrong, but I think the meeting dates for a calendar year are chose late the year before so they can be posted online. If so, sometime between then and now the light bulb went on and someone woke up to the fact that you really shouldn’t have an important city meeting on the same date we’re supposed to go to the polls and select a US president.
After all, at Franklin Common Council meetings, helping to preside is the City Clerk, who also happens to be in charge of running the elections for the city. Can’t have her at a meeting and running the fort t City Hall, too.
Of course this is really simple. You schedule a resolution at a Common Council meeting to fix things. On the agenda Tuesday (tomorrow) at their regularly scheduled meeting the council will vote to re-schedule the ill-advised November 3 get-together to November 2.
Should take but a matter of seconds. Even our Common Council couldn’t mess that up. I just wonder why it took this long.
Knowing my good friend Mayor Steve Olson he’ll blame the state (he loves to do that). Or the Feds. But never the city. The city never makes a mistake. 🙂
Sorry, you can’t make this stuff up. No excuse.
