Frankfort is a great place to live! After careful consideration,
my husband, Richard, and I chose to move here from Austin,
Texas. A climate with four seasons was certainly part of the
decision since both of us like gardening. In addition, we were
attracted to the size of the city, the historic features, and
friendliness of the community. In 2020, we will be residents of
Frankfort for 10 years.
I recently completed a four year term with our municipal utility
board, the Frankfort Plant Board (FPB). This was a dynamic
experience. FPB supplies water, electric and cable/internet to
the community. I have gained an understanding of the pressures
on a public utility, as well as the the technical and financial challenges
each of these services involve. This has been an educational
challenge on so many levels that I believe I have gained a
perspective that will help the community of Frankfort move
