Burst water pipe at WL City Hall could expedite relocation

Jan 29, 2014

There is no estimate yet as to how much damage a ruptured pipe caused at West Lafayette City Hall.

Mayor John Dennis says this is the second time this month that a water pipe in the building has frozen and burst.

He says the problems are reigniting talks about moving City Hall to Morton Community Center.

Dennis says officials have discussed the move and have had conceptual plans created, but he says the relocation is still several years away.

He says the process would require giving the programs and vendors who operate out of Morton Community Center advance notice before renovations could begin.
