County announces contract for economic development
Local government officials from Macon County and the municipalities of Highlands and Franklin convened last Thursday night to discuss ongoing and future projects, and to announce personnel updates within their respected organizations. Macon County Commissioners, Highlands Commissioners, and Franklin’s Board of Aldermen come together three times a year at a joint meeting in an effort to improve overall collaboration between the three entities. The Town of Highlands hosted the year’s last session at Wolfgang’s restaurant on Main Street in Highlands.
“I can’t keep talking about the continuity that we’ve had with this gathering three times a year, because it just allows us to get a relationship and camaraderie with the group,” said Franklin Mayor Joe Collins.
