Frankfort’s new Director of Parks and Recreation starts Monday, just weeks after the previous holder of the job left under a cloud of suspicion.

Joel Tatum is accused of financial misdeeds, but city officials have been tight-lipped about what he allegedly did wrong. An investigation is ongoing by the county prosecutor’s office and the State Board of Accounts.

His replacement, Travis Sheets, returns to the position after several years away – some of which he spent in Africa.
