This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, the school safety conversation continues. Frankfort has placed school resource officers in local schools—but will they be opting into the state’s handheld metal detector program? Is there more than one way to ensure student safety? And how can Frankfort stay prepared outside of school?

We’ll also discuss Frito-Lay’s plans to expand in Frankfort, with two new production lines in the works and additional warehouse space—but is there room for even more job creation?

Plus, potential plans lie ahead for the construction of a long-discussed overpass, but funding questions remain.
