By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Franklin Town Administrator has informed the Town Council of his intentions to retire in June of next year, around the time the books close on Fiscal Year 2019. Jeff Nutting says he wants to give the Council early notice, so the process to find a successor can begin before the start of 2020 budget discussions in January. Nutting says this will help make for a smooth transition. Mr. Nutting has been Franklin’s Town Administrator since 2001 when Town Councilors meet tonight, they’ll consider a resolution to establish a search committee to find a replacement for Nutting. Also on the agenda tonight the Department of Public Works will present a pavement management program aimed at repairing some 55-percent of the town’s roads that need more than just routine maintenance, covering some 90-miles of roads at a cost of close to 40-million dollars. The council tonight will also review a resolution to authorize an agreement with the Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School to provide the school with a school resource officer at a cost of 40-thousand dollars a year, to be paid for by the school.
