The Frankfort City Council took the first step to increasing water rates by 53.6% at its Monday, July 27, 2020, meeting. The new rates will have to pass two additional rounds of votes in addition to a public hearing. August 24, 2020, would be the earliest all necessary procedural requirements are met. Over $13,600,000 is needed to expand and begin repair of the current Frankfort water network. This need is being driven by a forecasted demand in water usage over the next 20-years and the current condition of the system.
