It’s been more than two years since Crawfordsville was named one of the winners of Indiana’s Stellar Communities grant program.

In that time, there’s been a lot of planning, but not a lot of construction.

Mayor Todd Barton says 2018 will see much of that building get underway, but there are still a few priorities which appear behind schedule.

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we’ll find out which projects will be completed next year and which might need to go back to the drawing board.

Also on this week’s show, it appears the county courthouse may have a clock tower removed during World War II replaced in 2018. We’ll ask what kind of a symbol it represents for Crawfordsville and whether, with the courthouse still needing other renovations, it’s the right thing on which to be spending money.
