  1. Interesting they say they want volunteers that are residents or business owners but they list on their board two members who are not residents or business owners. BILL NO. 070947, as amended

    Interesting observations Nancy Cherone, of former Frankford Hospital and Terry Tobin, former NFCY Director not residents or business owners and Bill Sponser, Dan Savage not listed as a Board member. In the bill Dan Savage introduces in 2007 FSSD is a proposed renewal of a (BID)Business Improvment District known as Frankford Special Services District but when the resolution is made it has magically become a (NID)Neighborhood Improvement District! A NID was never established legally in Frankford! FSSD was a BID not a NID so how do they think they can re-establish a BID and it magically turns into a NID? If they are a NID now when did thy hold those public hearings? Where are thge copies of the letters they would have been required to send to the home owners in the NID getting their approval to tax those homeowners in the NID? Where are tghe new maps showing which properties they as a NID are taxing? I would like answers to those questions at their public hearing.

  2. Crazy Mommy,
    I read this website daily and you appear to be very knowledgeable about Frankford, both present and past.

    Do you currently hold any volunteer positions in the community? If not, you should consider doing so, your knowledge and overall concern for Frankford would be a tremendous assest to the community.

  3. I have just been here a long time and observed the things that go on. I have no title, or position here other than resident. Thank you for your kind words.
