Franklin Tomorrow’s 2016 FrankTalks lecture series will continue Monday, Aug. 8, in the Community Room in the Administration building of the new Columbia State Community College campus at 1128 Liberty Pike in Franklin.
Franklin City Administrator Eric Stuckey will bring the “City Hall on Wheels” to east Franklin for the monthly event, which will begin at 9 a.m. with a coffee social, followed at 9:30 a.m. by Stuckey’s presentation. He will explain what’s on the horizon in the city in terms of projects, but also will use the time to hear from residents on potential projects and issues across the city.
Franklin Tomorrow is partnering with Vanderbilt University’s Office of Neighborhood, Government and Community Relations to expand the frequency of FrankTalks in 2016 to a monthly program, starting with this event.
The new campus of Columbia State Community College is located at 1228 Liberty Pike, east of Carothers Parkway. The event will be held in the Community Room, located in Room 221 of Building A on the campus.
“FrankTalks will explore issues and topics of concern in our community in a smaller, more accessible venue than our highly popular Breakfast With the Mayors’ series,” said Tim Murphy, Franklin Tomorrow’s 2016 Board president. “It is our hope to schedule these at different times throughout the day on the second Monday of each month to engage those unable to attend other events due to childcare or other time constraints.”
Stuckey has been city administrator since 2009 and as the city’s top administrative official, he oversees day-to-day operations and works with the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) to chart the strategic direction of the City.
The public is invited to FrankTalks, which is free and open to the public. To register for the Aug. 8 event, please follow this link.
