IU Health faces a number of challenges as it takes over operation of Frankfort Hospital, and new facility president Kelly Braverman says she’s not sure what she’ll address first – facilities or services.

“Kind of chicken-and-egg, maybe, a little bit," Braverman says.

A Frankfort manufacturer decided not to expand its existing plant in Clinton County, instead choosing to build a new plant in Anderson, Indiana.

Mayor Chris McBarnes explains why the city lost out on the $100 million investment and the nearly 200 jobs the plant is expected to  create.

This week on WBAA's Ask The Mayor, we query McBarnes on what steps his community needs to take to ensure the city can compete for new employers and the jobs they bring.
