The City of Frankfort is organized under the City Manager form of government.  Frankfort is led by a 5 member Board of Commissioners, which includes the Mayor and four Commissioners.  The Mayor is elected every four years; commissioners are elected every two years.  The elections are nonpartisan.


The
Board of Commissioners must appoint 1 commissioner as Mayor Pro Tem to act on the Mayor's behalf if that person is unable to attend to his/ her duties.  Duties specific to the Mayor include presiding over meetings, signing contracts, serving as the ceremonial head of government, & making appointments to certain boards.


Frankfort is one of only 19 of Kentucky's 400 + cities which operate under the City Manager form of government.  Frankfort differs from cities with a Mayor-Council plan or Commission plan, because while ultimate responsibility and control over executive and legislative authority rests with the Board of Commissioners as a whole, the day-to-day executive and administrative responsibility is given to the City Manager by state law.
