Earlier this month, WBAA conducted a survey and presented the results at a community forum in Frankfort. There were some interesting findings, and a few universal truths seemed to emerge.

First, most everyone wants Frankfort to grow, at least a little. But there’s also near-universal agreement that people aren’t using the amenities Frankfort already has enough. And if that’s the case, why would investors spend their money in that type of environment?

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we see what sort of feedback Mayor Chris McBarnes has gotten.

Also on this week’s show, the city hires a familiar face to oversee cleanup of blighted properties, and whatever became of the debate concerning the Clinton County Humane Society. Locals worried that county officials could let it drop, but WBAA has not.
