SFNA news – the big snow
The latest weather information can be found at the NWS-Louisville office website or facebook page:http://www.weather.gov/lmk/
FPB phone number to report outages: 502-352-4372
All State offices are closed tomorrow. Because of the expected hazardous travel conditions, most other things are closing too (schools etc)
TRASH & RECYCLING ARE POSTPONED UNTIL MONDAY
Solid Waste will be cancelling it’s Friday, January 22 pick-up and will use Monday, January 25 to pick up in those scheduled neighborhoods.
Right now it looks like we will escape the ice and just get snow. The City and County are asking to people to park off the street where possible and if you have to park on the street to try to group vehicles together to allow the plows to work most effectively.
The timing of the snow for Frankfort is still variable, we’re on the border between 7am-10am and 10am-1pm tommorow. It’s best to be prepared now — charge your phone and tablets now, locate your flashlight. Both the Frankfort Police Dept and the City have apps for smartphones and tablets which you can install.
Travel conditions on Friday are expected to be hazardous, please be careful if you must go out. Stay tuned to local news or radio for updates on conditions as the storm develops. Local radio includes Star 103.7, Froggy and Passport (AM and FM). http://mypassportradio.com/

We’re working on the date for the next Quarterly SFNA meeting and will send that around once we have set the time and location.

Transportation Cabinet District 5 is assessing engineering data which indicate that repairs are needed to the truss / structure of the Singing Bridge. The repairs will require the closure of the sidewalks to pedestrian foot traffic.
Right now it is unlikely that this closure will take place tomorrow morning (Fri 28 Aug). We await further details from District 5 and our local public safety / Streets Depts.
It is probable that we could lose pedestrian access until Spring 2016.
The next South Frankfort Neighborhood Association quarterly meeting will be held April 23rd at 6:00 p.m. at the South Frankfort Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, at 224 Steele Street. Please use the Third Street entrance. We will have a supper and social hour ($5 donation recommended for our Randy Bacon Scholarship fund), then begin the business portion of our meeting at 7:00 p.m. We expect the meeting to run for approximately one hour.

Also making a brief presentation will be Eric Whisman from the Franklin County Trust for Historic Preservation.

Although we are in town, we are not immune to invasive species in our yards and gardens. Learn more here (http://forestry.ky.gov/foresthealth/Pages/InvasivePlantThreats.aspx). In particular our irreplaceable mature trees are under threat from ivy and winter creeper. It is particularly important to remove winter creeper from trees to slow its spread — start by cutting the vines at the base of the tree. (http://www2.ca.uky.edu/forestryextension/KWM/Winter%20creeper.pdf) Contact the Extension Office for more information.

The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate America’s Independence. But it’s also a time for family and friends, parades, picnics and fun! And that’s what the South Frankfort Neighborhood Association did on Friday morning. About 50 residents from the area met and had their own little parade down Paul Sawyier Drive to Dolly Graham Park, where families and friends gathered and enjoyed All-American holiday appropriate food such as hotdogs, chips and frozen treats. Kids enjoyed playing while parents and neighbors gathered to catch up on each other’s lives.
