Using the theme “Making Lemonade out of Lemons,” Franklin Mayor Ken Moore will be presenting his annual State of the City address Wednesday, April 28, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Franklin Park in Cool Springs.
The event is being held at the outdoor amphitheater, located at 6100 Tower Circle, to reduce the risk to COVID-19 exposure. Seating will comply with recommended CDC guidelines for gatherings, and tickets are limited due to COVID precautions.
According to a press release from the city, Moore will discuss how, even during a pandemic, the community came together and continues to make a stronger Franklin for the future. Featured guests include Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson, Williamson County Emergency Management Director Todd Horton, Williamson County Health Department Director Cathy Montgomery and Nichole Volk, director of Marketing from Williamson Medical Center.
Moore will also talk about the city’s many accomplishments in 2020, despite the pandemic, and discuss projects on the horizon with City Administrator Eric Stuckey.
Lunch will be provided thanks to the Franklin Breakfast Rotary. The Franklin High School Band, led by director Jacob Campos, will provide music for the event.
For those that can’t attend in person and choose to watch virtually, the State of the City will be streamed live on the city’s Facebook page.
