On a day with a sub-zero wind chill factor, a frigid breeze is a topic for discussion.

But in Frankfort today, it could be the wind itself that gets the cold shoulder at a meeting deciding the future of alternative energy in Clinton County.

On this week's Ask The Mayor, we talk with Frankfort Mayor Chris McBarnes about how to separate the facts of wind energy from the bluster.

Also on today’s program, the county council has voted to improve drainage for a possible industrial site near State Road 28 and I-65. It’s an area Mayor McBarnes might like to annex in the future.

But if the county develops the land first and starts getting tax revenue from it, does that make the annexation more difficult?
