Franklin’s Borough Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to borrow more tehan $1.75 million for improvements to the borough.

The ordinance, which was introduced last month, will help to get the borough back on track with a proposed 11-year plan to repair its roads — which fell a year behind before it even got started when only $275,000 of the necessary $400,000 was budgeted for the first year.

“This is one of those hard decisions people elect us to make,” Councilman Nick Giordano said at the introduction meeting.

The lack of disagreement during the public hearing showed that Franklin residents agree with the council’s decision, the lone speaker suggesting which road she believes needs to be addressed first.

In addition to the roadways and infrastructure, the bonded money will go toward firehouse improvements, purchase of equipment for the department of public works, and reconstruction of borough sidewalks.
