Again, as you are not a citizen of the city of Frankfort you have ZERO say in how the city is run. Frankly you need to butt out, worry about Rossville and how it is nothing but a bedroom community for Lafayette and Kokomo.
Can I call and complain about now Rossville is run? Should you be able to vote in Frankfort city elections? Which city council member would represent you?
Does the light plant only cover in this one county?

It makes No difference"tell me" This "person" seems very easy to forget The COUNTY Taxes helped PAY for the Jefferson Projcet- The Eastside Drainage- and IVY Tech of Which ROSSVILLE will have NO horse in the Race of the FIRST TWO- But it's OK to take OUT Tax money and Fix the CITIES problems and TAKE OUTSIDE monies from JEFFERSON through Utilities. I sure do HOPE some of the TRUE citizens of yer fine city git on here and BLOW your butt ta CHINIE!

The USB has been helping to "pay Frankfort's bills for a long, long time". This is nothing new. Can you please point to the statute where this is illegal?
Sorry, but the city tax money I pay to fund things like police and fire protection do not belong to you.
Punjabby - the illegality comes when neither the city council nor the utility board are informed and allowed to vote for the transfer.

Indiana Statute: IC 8-1.5-3-12
http://www.in.gov/legislative/ic/code/title8/...

Yes, the city engaged in unlawful transfer of monies and was noted in the following:

Page 16 of http://www.in.gov/sboa/WebReports/B33402.pdf where this was done in the amount of $2.2 Million

Not to mention the COUNTY folks are on the hook of paying back the CITY of FRANKFORT upon the merge of the Airport when the former CITY of FRANKFORT Airport was in debt of nearly $100,000.

The same former CITY of FRANKFORT Clerk-Treasurer was Treasurer for the AIRPORT at the time and could not explain why the CITY of FRANKFORT was not repaid the $100,000 loan or where the money went.

So thank you Nu-Viewer for bailing us out here in the CITY of FRANKFORT.

But the USB "paying the city's bills" is not illegal in and of itself. Thank you for proving that 'well'.

You are indeed a real moron. Side step the illegal activity of the internal transferring money from various accounts to cover checks and the USB bailing the city out because they can't manage their budgets. The state already proved that so don't start your whining about proving it.

Of course it helps that the mayor gets to put 3 of his own crew in there to get his way when needed. And lets not forget the two puppet-masters (or sock-masters for you) who tell him what to do, fly him all over the US, and who knows what else.

That's all common knowledge so there is no reason to "prove" anything. Why don't you prove us wrong. Because you can't that's why.

If all this activity is illegal, then why haven't YOU reported them to the state authorities?

And political patronage is as old as politics themselves. Are you saying former mayors like Pippenger and Stock didn't try and put members of 'his crew' in certain positions?

Has anyone seen the updated accounting for the city recently?

At the BoW meeting, they were talking about transferring some funds to assist in buying some things.

While people are aware that some of those transfers are within the perimeters of state guideline, one would think that, given our current outflow being higher than intake, the BoW would be more careful about said purchases right now.

IVT might need more money. Ha ha

Yes it does. So some of you county FP&L users should be concerned about what the USB does because we city people sure are.

To my knowledge there is no 'light plant' in the county anymore. Customers of Frankfort City Power & Light effectively purchase electricity through a co-operative with other similar sized municipalities.

Ok, is the city light and power responsible for other customers outside this county? In other words, does employees with the city light and power work in different counties because the customer is paying for the electricity provided by the city light and power?

FPL does not actually generate electricity, it buys electricity on the open market and provides the infrastructure to deliver that electricity to its customers. And I don't believe that it delivers that electricity to locations outside of Clinton county.

I don't think that employees of FPL work in different counties, unless they are moonlighting. But I'm sure you could call the FPL office or a member of the USB and they could give you a definitive answer.
