FRANKFORT, Ind. (AP) - The mayor of Frankfort in central Indiana says he wants the city to focus on getting rid of blighted properties and creating a citizens’ police academy in the next six months.

WLFI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1EG2Ifd ) the efforts are part of a 200-day plan from Mayor Chris McBarnes. He says the city will step up code enforcement and implement hew guidelines for historic districts.

Other parts of the 200-day plan include economic development, growing the city’s population, job creation and a downtown action plan.

The Republican mayor is seeking re-election and has a challenger in the May primary.
