FRANKLIN – The Franklin City Council at a recent meeting approved both an amendment to budget for a city administrator and a land purchase.
In other actions, the council tabled a decision to increase water usage for residents from 10,000 gallons per month to 15,000 per month to allow for winter trickling from faucets to prevent pipes from freezing.
Due to warmer weather, officials want to see how much trickling of water would be needed.
The council approved using city administrator Jeremy Kimpton as the designated signer for the DMR monitoring of water testing. Stanton Smith was appointed as the new council member, taking the seat that was formerly held by Todd Hawkes.
He will be sworn into office during the January meeting.
