Folks, it is time we see the writing on the wall. It is time we hold the Mayor of Franklin, our elected officials, our committees and commissioners accountable. Franklin’s motto is “celebrating quality of life”. In my opinion, especially as demonstrated to us by our Mayor, this motto couldn’t be any further from what these people are pushing Franklin towards and for seemingly no gain. If Strauss and Copart go into the Loomis Business Park everyone in this region may want to worry about the quality of our water. With a slaughterhouse and an auto salvage yard built above local watersheds there is a very real threat of water contamination. Of course we wouldn’t know how much of a threat because no impact studies and analyses were required by Mayor Olson, our elected officials, our committees or commissioners. What is it going to take for the people of Franklin to get involved?
