The brain trust known as the Franklin Common Council has yet to make a decision on when Halloween trick or treat hours will be held. Of course this is a noggin' knocker, a tough ruling that truly perplexes. Requires time and lots of it. Good Lord, the pressure's on because something must be decided at the September 6 meeting.
This gives you, the public the opportunity to lend a helping hand to our puzzled, elected head scratchers.
It's quite simple. The logical trick or treat date is Sunday October 30.

People, let your representatives know!
