The mayor says the city didn't want to wait to do work on US 52 until after other construction was done, for fear of being put at the bottom of INDOT's priority list.

The city of West Lafayette has settled a legal case brought by a man shocked with a stun gun at Chauncey Hill Mall in 2013 for taping a police takedown of another person.

On this edition of Ask The Mayor, we talk with John Dennis about whether the incident has led to disciplinary action for any of the officers or changes in the way the city’s police conduct their business.

Also on today’s show, in a construction season where Greater Lafayette’s motto might as well be “you can’t get there from here,” why is the city doing seemingly non-essential roadwork?

And speaking of roads, a listener wants to know who gets to make decisions about where there are stop signs.
