Golf Preserve of Frankfort

City of Frankfort

One of the main reasons Frankfort city councilman Lewis Wheeler is running against incumbent Chris McBarnes in this year’s Republican mayoral primary is a difference of opinion in how the city spends its money on the way toward possible economic development.

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we quiz Mayor McBarnes about why he’s hired a new Community Development Director, and how her job might be different than what the Chamber of Commerce has already been doing.

The Clinton County Surveyor’s office is about to start using a drone for its work. It’s a 21st Century solution to the old problem of trying to map out-of-the-way places.

On today’s Ask The Mayor, we see if Frankfort’s Chris McBarnes has any similar plans to use new tech to keep a watchful eye on his city’s needs and trouble spots.

Also on this week’s show, spring signals rebirth – which is exactly what Frankfort’s money-losing city golf course needs. We ask if a lackluster spring means more of the same red ink on the city’s bottom line that it’s seen in the past.

As 2015 comes to a close, the city of Frankfort is seeing some new faces come to power.

Not the mayor, who was easily re-elected last month, but some of his deputies – people who, in many cases, will face tough choices in the year ahead.

This week on Ask The Mayor, we quiz Chris McBarnes about how he’s choosing his new allies and about what the flux means for solving some of the city’s problems.
