Former Mayor Frank Krainz served in the Navy during World War II as a radar man and retired from Gould, Inc. at the age of 55. Before being elected mayor in 1974, he had been a councilman for two years.
Mayor Krainz was well known for his colorful dialogue on the Council floor. He was never afraid to speak his mind, which was both his trademark and part of the reason for his many successes. Former Mayor Roy Mayes once referred to Mayor Krainz as one of the most honest people he ever met.
During his term as Mayor, the new Police Headquarters was built and a fire engine was purchased. Mayor Krainz also initiated a street resurfacing program and street lights were put on Miner and Bishop Roads during his time as mayor.
