In recent years, several Indiana cities have made sports-related investments as a way of trying to lure athletic tourism dollars.

Now that Lafayette is building a softball park and a new Loeb Stadium, is it the latest municipality to try that tactic?

That’s one of the questions we pose this week to Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor.

Also on today’s show, the fate of the long-debated Americus quarry may be decided later this month.

We ask if Mayor Roswarski sees the outcome as a determining factor in how his economy is viewed by firms that might be looking to invest in the area.

And we take your questions about rough railroad crossings, how many water bills a Lafayette resident should get each year and more.
