The next City Commission work session will be 7 Sept 2016 at 5pm. This replaces the regularly scheduled meeting which would have taken place on the 12th.
The Frankfort Independent Board of Education will hold community forums for school district residents on Wednesday, August 31, 2016, and on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.
Both forums will begin at 6:00 pm and will be held at the Paul Sawyier Public Library community room, 319 Wapping Street, Frankfort, Kentucky.
All residents of the district are encouraged to attend.
The board will provide information on a tax that the district is eligible to levy that will be matched by state government funds. The levy would be 5 cents per $100 of property value and would be restricted to the improvement of school buildings.
The board of education asks for the participation of the school district community on this levy.
