New Pickleball Courts Now Completed at

The Department of Public Works has completed a conversion of an existing tennis court at Lions Legend II Park into four dedicated Pickleball courts.  An adjacent tennis court with a backboard still remains for those who wish to play tennis.  Bringing Pickleball to Franklin was a grassroots effort led by residents working with the City's Parks Commission.

At the 2018 Wisconsin Rural Water Association (WRWA) convention in La Crosse, Wisconsin, the Franklin Water & Sewer Utility contingent was pleasantly surprised to be called up on stage to accept the Annual Safety Award.  Chris Groh, WRWA Executive Director said, "This award is given to a utility that has shown excellence in areas of utility management, operations, and customer service.  One of these areas is workplace safety.  Working in the public utility industries is a dangerous occupation, especially in the weather conditions we experience here in Wisconsin.  We're honored to recognize communities like the City of Franklin that are committed to maintaining a safe workplace for all their municipal employees while at the same time providing excellent services to their customers."  

The WRWA is a non-profit organization representing most of the water and wastewater systems in the State.  Its mission is assisting, educating, and representing their members in the wise use of water resources.  Franklin was nominated for the annual Safety Award by Vincent Matarrese III of Advanced Safety Technology, Inc.  Mr. Matarrese has taught Franklin personnel safety courses for over 20 years.  When asked why he nominated Franklin, Vince said "it was an easy pick and noted that Franklin's attitude towards safety has always been a proactive approach.  It started with Roy Kainz years ago and Mike Roberts has improved on it."  Vince further illustrated his continued admiration of Franklin's staff noting that "When someone tells me it can't be done or nobody in the State does it, I use Franklin as an example.  They haven't done a good job just in the last couple of years, but for over 20 years.  That says a lot about the Franklin Utility Department.  Mike Roberts has a good group of guys and I'm proud of them.  They should be recognized."
