Frankfort is now a Certified City of Ethics

Congratulations to the City of Frankfort! 

Frankfort officials and staff receive their KLC Certified City of Ethics certification. Left to right are: Jennifer Jenkins, Commissioner John Sower, Commissioner Scott Tippett, Commissioner Eric Whisman, Commissioner Katrisha Waldridge, Mayor Bill May, Laura Ross, Chermie Maxwell, Renee Carter, Keith Parker and Wayne Briscoe.

Residents and businesses expect efficiency, inclusiveness, and ethical leadership from local government.  Certification under the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) Certified City of Ethics Program is a way to recognize cities and city officials that have adopted principles and procedures that offer guidance on ethical issues, and a mechanism to resolve complaints at the local level. In addition, this program increases public trust and confidence in city governments and their services through the training and recognition that this program promotes. To maintain this status, a city must receive training every four years on the ethics ordinance.
