The Frankford City Council meeting began on Tuesday with the city attorney, members of the current board and those recently elected to the city council going into a closed session meeting.
The closed session meeting, according to city officials, was to allow city leaders to discuss potential litigation between the city and the company that the city contracted with to overhaul the water system.
Readers may remember that the when the project was first started in June 2016, it was scheduled to be completed by October.
The water project is still ongoing as of press time.
According to city officials, the water project — including clean-up and restoration of city streets — is expected to be completed sometime in mid-May.
After the closed session meeting, the public was invited back into City Hall, but the meeting was moved next door to the Community Center to allow for the standing room only crowd to have more places to sit.
In the Community Center, public works director Josh Waelder addressed both the crowd and members of the council regarding the Department of Natural Resources recent investigation into a damaged sewer line.
