  • That was what I was wondering. Exactly how does the arts foundation help me in my dailey lives?Does it repair the roads? Does it patrol my streets?Does it provide fire and emergency services? Does it clean my water to drink? Does it keep my city sanitized from waste. Does it pickup my garbage and dispose of it properly? Please let me know what my taxes are spent on to help me!!Does it help people with a hand up so that they can get their lives together.


    Read other stories on why the city state and federal goverment want to raise my taxes and this is a prime exampl(unless they actually do help)on how we waste taxes.

  • What does the Frankfort Arts Foundation do..?


    I thought they were defunct. Their website has not been updated since 2008 and their facebook page has not been updated for years.
