Ask The Mayor: Frankfort's Chris McBarnes On The Import Of Building A Wall (Not THAT one)

It turns out it might cost more than originally planned to retrofit what Frankfort’s police chief calls the city’s “1970s” police department. The city has already raised utility rates and at least one tax, so how much further is Mayor Chris McBarnes willing to go before he thinks he’ll encroach on his fiscal conservative bona fides?

We put that question to Mayor McBarnes on this edition of WBAA’s Ask The Mayor.

Also on this week’s show, the saga of the city’s parks department continues. First, financial irregularities were found. Then, the former parks chief was sacked. The county prosecutor’s office has investigated, several closed door meetings have happened and earlier this month, the State Board of Accounts sent representatives to Frankfort for their own audit.

The mayor says he expects subpoenas. We’ll ask when and whether anyone besides the former supervisor is in the crosshairs.
