New members of a Franklin agency will need a few months to learn about pending projects totaling more than $2.4 million before deciding what to do next.
Four new members appointed to the Franklin Development Corp. board since July want to learn about all of the projects the group has funded since it was formed in 2008. But before that, they and one reappointment from the original board will have to find two more members to join them.
Most of the original $5 million in taxpayer dollars given to the group in 2008 has been spent or committed to projects. While managing the group’s current projects, the newly reorganized group will have to decide how best to use the remaining $350,000.
