“I appreciate everything that Jason Forsythe has done for the City and the Street Department.

Thank you Jason.”

Reith Riley was awarded Frankfort’s paving projects at the December 30, 2021 Board of Public Works Meeting. To see how the cost per project has been broken down, please visit The City of Frankfort’s website.

“I want to personally thank Mayor Sheets, Board of Public Works, as well as City Council for their time and appropriating funds for us to use towards the application for these 23 projects. All of the roadways listed were considered 2-rated roads on the Paser Scale as part of the City of Frankfort Asset Management Plan – required for the grant process. A ten on the Paser Scale is equivalent to the revitalized Washington Avenue and zero is considered the worst,” add Jason Forsythe.
