The City of Franklin is governed by a Board of Mayor and Aldermen. There are eight Aldermen on the Board. Four Aldermen are elected from the four political divisions of the City called wards; four are elected at-large. This governing board is responsible for deciding on the city's policies and procedures by passing Resolutions, Municipal Ordinances and the Municipal Code, all of which are implemented by the various City Departments. All meetings are public and will generally be held in the City Hall Board Room. Board of Mayor and Aldermen Meetings and Planning Commission meetings are presently broadcast live on FRANKLIN TV on Comcast Channel 10 and AT&T U-Verse 99 and replayed throughout the month.
