2020 Moore

Franklin Mayor Ken Moore

As guidelines on physical distancing and restrictions on large gatherings remain in place because of the coronavirus outbreak, Franklin Mayor Ken Moore will be virtually delivering his 10th State of the City address Friday at 6 p.m.

The entire address will be produced completely using virtual interview tools and edited videos so anyone can watch from the comfort of their own homes.

“The State of the City address is an important outreach to our residents and provides information on the city’s accomplishments and challenges from the previous 12 months and what we see looking forward,” Moore said in a press release from the city. “I wanted to make sure we could still do the address even if it had to be in a new and different way.”

Moore’s presentation will give an update on the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the community.  There will also be a discussion on the proposed budget for fiscal year 2021 and upcoming capital projects.

The State of the City will premiere on the city’s FacebookYouTube and Instagram accounts, as well as on Franklin TV (Channel 10 on Comcast and Channel 99 on AT&T).  

It will re-air Saturday at 8 p.m. and will be available to watch later on the City’s Facebook page, YouTube page and website.
