Money allows revamped organization to fulfill obligations, hire consultant

Franklin is giving another $50,000 to a taxpayer-funded organization tasked with spurring economic development in the downtown to allow the group to continue to operate.

The city council approved the money for the Franklin Development Corp., which requested the funds to help pay for ongoing costs such as legal fees, advertising and possibly a consultant.
