It appears the money is about to start flowing in to fund the improvements Crawfordsville touted to win one of last year’s Stellar Communities designations.

But there are still some kinks to work out, like: don’t you have to own land before you can build on it?

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we get an update on the city’s bank account and its construction progress from Todd Barton.

Also on this week’s program, there’s a new head of the Montgomery County Republican Party – someone who aligns herself much more closely with Mayor Barton than with the former party chair, who’s now a Libertarian.

But is it now a more “progressive” county GOP, or is that a bad word?
