The police and fire stations are quick to respond to emergencies, but non-emergencies they take their time. The local law regarding loud noises and music should be changed from 75 feet to 20 feet and the noise ordinance is wrong in my opinion. It should start at an earlier like 6:00pm since that is when most people are trying to have a conversation and family quality time at the dinner table. It's hard to do that when neighbors are having a party and their own concerts! It makes it hard to study for classes also. This is one reason why I want to move, the city does not respect hard working families and cater to the ones that disrupt a peaceful life on a daily basis or every weekend.

Franklin is a good place to live if someone has small children because the schools are excellent. Another good thing about Franklin is that there is a lot of jobs available to fit almost anyone's needs. The only thing I would change is providing more activities for small children and families to do together.
Franklin is a relatively okay city to live in. It's roads definitely need to be fixed. The schools in Franklin are pretty good but need to be kept clean and maybe have more choices in highschool to help us become adults.
