USA: Frankfort to install electric car charging station in downtown district

As part of its ongoing mission to make its downtown area unique, Frankfort village officials plan to add an electric car charging station to the town’s quiet business district in early summer.

Village Administrator Jerry Ducay said the village is moving forward with plans to spend about $1,300 to install one charging station in the Breidert Green parking lot where drivers can plug in their electric cars for free.

“It’s something that’s different,” Ducay said. “We’re hoping that it’ll be yet another example of how our downtown stands apart from other towns.”

Frankfort’s Departmental Operations Committee OK’d the project last week when members agreed to make the station available to drivers without a fee, Ducay said. He expects rules still will be developed to determine what sort of time limits might be necessary at the charging station.

“We probably would develop some regulations so people don’t park overnight or park long term,” he said.
