Warren Cabe is leaving his role as the Franklin Town Manager as of May 2, a year after he began. The move was announced at Monday night's Board of Aldermen meeting after the board went into a closed session to discuss personnel matters. Upon returning, the board made a motion to accept Cabe's letter of resignation.

“I am thankful for the Town of Franklin and my time working for this board. I have learned a lot during my time as manager. The reason that I am leaving is in no way an ill result of my time working as manager,” said Cabe. “An opportunity has presented itself and it's one that I need to pursue.”

Before becoming town manager Cabe served as Macon County Emergency Medical Services Director and then shifted to the Town of Franklin. Now it looks as though he will be returning to the county as the EMS director once again.

After a short public session, the proposed lease of the old town hall property was brought up for discussion and action. Local residents, Ken Murphy and Lenny Jordan approached the board last month to propose a lease that would allow them to install Franklin's first brewpub. The business would brew beer onsite as well as allow locals to sample and enjoy the custom brews on the property.

Since the Town of Franklin's annual retreat back in January, there has been a buzz around Main Street concerning the gazebo located at town square. A design was presented to the board which was later released to the public and drew criticism from many local residents, business owners and performers.

As a response to the outcry, the League of Women Voters along with Venture Local Franklin hosted a “town hall” style meeting at Tartan Hall of the First Presbyterian Church on Monday night to give the public a chance to hash out various ideas. Some members of the public also submitted architectural designs for consideration.
