Ask The Mayor: Frankfort's Chris McBarnes On Keeping INDOT To Its Word

City of Frankfort

The city of Frankfort long ago identified State Road 28 as an area of concern.

The state department of transportation gave the road a topcoat of asphalt not long ago, but didn’t fix the underlying problems, pushing them off until 2019.

Now the city is trying to plan for that construction, but should it be worried the state will again kick the can down the pothole-laden road? We put that to Chris McBarnes on this edition of Ask The Mayor.

Also on this week’s program, the city council voted for an electric rate increase, but only by the slimmest of margins. What does that say about the city’s appetite for it?

And might it signal to state watchdogs that there’s more room to negotiate down the proposed cost hikes?
