Franklin will need to name a new employee to oversee road construction and maintenance.
Franklin street commissioner Ron Collins resigned last week, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family.
Andy Duckworth is serving as interim street commissioner. Mayor Joe McGuinness plans to name a permanent replacement.
Collins formerly worked as the street department supervisor in Anchorage, Alaska, before retiring and moving to Franklin. He took the Franklin job when McGuinness took office at the start of 2012. Collins told the mayor he would help run the department for about a year but decided to stay longer because he was enjoying the work, McGuinness said.
