On Monday night, to a standing room only crowd in town hall, the Franklin Board of Aldermen approved a license agreement to allow The Bowery Restaurant to keep a piece of sidewalk on town property.

The agreement was approved unanimously by the board and included no other discussion other than an opening statement from Franklin Mayor Bob Scott.

Last week Porter Street was temporarily blocked as 11 new tanks were delivered to the Lazy Hiker Brewing Co., bringing the new business one step closer to opening its doors.

After having the 11 tanks custom-made for the brewery, they were delivered and set up in the warehouse in the back of Franklin's old town hall last week. Noah McIntee, head brewer for Franklin's first brewery, said with the addition of the tanks, just one more piece of the puzzle is needed to begin brewing exceptional craft beer.

"These 11 tanks put us a little closer to where we need to be to get the doors open and the beer flowing," said McIntee.


By state law, Macon County must undergo a financial audit each year, conducted by an outside third party. The audit delves into the records and financial reports of the county to look for any inaccuracies and ensures that all the books add up.

During their February meeting, Macon County commissioners were informed that for yet another year, Macon County was given a "clean audit" report.

The 2014 fiscal year audit was presented to commissioners by Ko Tang Cha- Moses from the auditing firm Martin, Starnes, and Associates. According to Cha-Moses, Macon County received a good report.

"A clean audit means the auditors issued an unmodified opinion - the best opinion they can give," explained Macon County Finance Director Lori Hall. "An unmodified opinion means that the auditors found no material misstatements that led them to believe the financial statements would be misleading to the reader."
