The Frankfort Police Department has released its numbers for the first half of this year, and arrests are down. Is that number reflective of a drop in crime in the community, or a change in the Frankfort Police Department? What is law enforcement doing differently?

And city officials say a new mural installed is aiding efforts to revitalize the downtown area. How does that project bring people in? Is the city still considering putting a parking garage up in place of the two buildings that burned down earlier this year?

We put those questions to Frankfort Mayor Chris McBarnes this week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor.

Also on this week’s show, the Clinton County Fair asked residents for what changes they wanted to see at the event. What did locals ask for? And have those changes had an impact on attendance?
