The city of West Lafayette is getting ready to issue bonds to pay for the State Street redesign. A proposal before the city council would allow the city to seek up to $78 million worth. But that’s in the ballpark for how much the whole project – whose cost is shared by Purdue – is supposed to cost. Today on Ask The Mayor, West Lafayette’s John Dennis helps us sort out the math.

Also in this half hour: We’ve received many questions from listeners about Mayor Dennis’s stance on accepting Syrian refugees. Will he attend a march tomorrow on the subject or sign a national petition supporting resettlement?
