The prospect of turning Interstate 65 into a toll road would have a significant impact on the city of Frankfort – especially if some of the money generated would be directed to road funding.

In this week's conversation with Mayor Chris McBarnes, we ask him if he’s for highway tolling and whether his plans to annex land out to the interstate might be affected by plans at the Statehouse.

Also on today’s show, we circle back to Frankfort’s desire to address derelict properties.

Now that a full-time investigator has been hired, will 2016 see an uptick in the number of hearings and demolitions of downtrodden houses?
