Assessments to Towns 

Each year, following the passage of the budget in late January, the FRCOG Finance Department releases the municipal assessments for annual membership, fee-for-service programs for the next fiscal year, and the Franklin County Emergency Communication System (FCECS) assessments.

Wage and Salary Surveys

The FRCOG publishes the results of its Franklin County Wage and Salary Survey each winter, providing detailed information on municipal compensation and benefits packages for local officials.  In FY23, in response to requests from municipal budgeting offices, staff expanded the project, gathering wage information from 8 towns outside of the county. The results of that initiative can be found in our first Out-of-County compilation below.

Municipal Directory

The Franklin Regional Council of Governments publishes a Municipal Directory which lists contact information for municipal officials, departments, and services for each of the county’s 26 municipalities.

District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA)

Thanks to the Baker/Polito Administration and the Legislature, the FRCOG is pleased to once again be able to offer member towns technical assistance on a wide variety of priority issues. Among the priorities that can be addressed using these DLTA funds are the Massachusetts Community Compact Best Practice Areas (Word file).
