Voters will weigh in on a $2.8 million Proposition 2 property tax override June 10 that would add an additional $244 to the tax bill of the average household valued at $411,000, according to Town Administrator Jeffrey Nutting. The Town Council voted to put the override question on the ballot at its April 30 meeting. If approved, the funds would prevent the loss of 15 teaching positions at the elementary schools, 12.5 teaching positions at the middle school, 17 teaching positions at the high school, a $100 increase in bus fees, and the end of late bus service for students who stay after school for clubs and other extracurricular activities. This is the second year in a row that Franklin residents have voted on a tax override; last year, voters approved a $2.7 million tax hike.
