A law signed by Governor Pence this week allows police greater flexibility in patrolling apartment complexes. Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski has a few on his list he’d like to see watched more closely, so today on Ask The Mayor, we’ll ask if the new law addresses a specific concern in his city as it tried to bring down some worrisome crime statistics.

Also on this week’s show, several questions about downtown redevelopment. The city must mollify both shop owners whose entrances will be blocked by construction and environmentalists who don’t want so many trees chopped down.
