From a grocery store to Gasoline Alley – on this week’s Ask The Mayor, the tale of what was supposed to be one mixed-use development becoming what some property owners nearby think may be an eyesore.

We ask how the city lost control over such a development and what could be done in the future to fix such issues.

We also check back with West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis on a couple issues that we chatted about on previous shows.

How are natural gas-powered trash trucks doing in cold weather and what might it mean if a Purdue student makes her way onto the city council representing the university’s district?
