Ask The Mayor

Thursdays at 1 p.m. on AM 920 and 105.9 FM, with a repeat at 7 p.m.

Each week, WBAA's news team chats with the mayor of a West Central Indiana community on Ask The Mayor. It's a discussion about the most pressing civic and social issues of the day and a chance to let citizens get to know their elected leaders a little better.

E-mail questions for any of the mayors to ask@wbaa.org.

Ask The Mayor airs live Thursdays at 1 p.m. on WBAA News (AM 920 and 105.9 FM) and is rebroadcast the same evening at 7.

Lafayette Mayor's Office

Some questions from this week's show:

Wednesday, the state said it wouldn’t honor the same-sex marriages performed last month. What’s the city’s position on that question?

You and John Dennis have advocated the creation of a single-entry agency which could help address homeless issues in Tippecanoe County. Where might you find the money that would be needed to pay for running such a thing? What do you think it’ll cost?

Does the city plan to change its fireworks ordinance to change the number of days (or the hours during the day) it's legal to fire them off?

City of West Lafayette

Some questions for the mayor this week:

You’ve been critical of Amtrak’s Hoosier State service, even as the city has helped subsidize its continued operation during the past year. This week, it was announced a private firm in Chicago, Corridor Capital, is the preferred vendor to operate the line starting in October. Is that any better, in your estimation, than Amtrak running the trains?
