An Archived Reference from The Frankston Citizen Online website

This is an archive of information contained in The Frankston Citizen Online, published as a successor to The Frankston Citizen newspaper, which was suspended on Sept. 5, 2019 after 109 years of publication by various publishers. The Frankston Citizen Online was published for approximately three years by a group of community citizens, operating for most of that time as THE Frankston Citizen LLC with Joe W. Tindel Sr., former editor and publisher from 1973 to 2005, acting as editor and webmaster. It suspended publication in the summer of 2023 with necessary operating expenses funded by individual volunteer resources early in 2023. At that time, it was determined that the website was not meeting the expectations of the original purpose, both of providing a replacement for the suspended weekly newspaper and continuing the legacy of the suspended weekly newspaper. The Frankston Depot Library and Museum, Inc., a non-profit, has agreed to accept donation and ownership of the website archives to enhance reference or research by users of the Frankston Depot Library and preserve the legacy of the suspended weekly newspaper. The non-profit corporation also will preserve ownership of the name The Frankston Citizen and manage the suspended newspaper’s surviving good will and assets, tangible and intangible, as of the date of a transfer resolution.
