WL officials adjusting to move from City Hall

Mar 18, 2014

The West Lafayette Board of Works has approved spending up to 35-thousand dollars to determine the extent of a mold problem in City Hall.

All offices were moved out of the building in February to allow for an environmental remediation survey.

Mayor John Dennis says the results will determine whether or not officials move back into the building.

Currently, the mayor and the clerk-treasurer are on the second floor of the Police Department, while the Engineering and Development offices are in Morton Community Center.

Dennis says there are challenges to being in different buildings, but services are not suffering.

The environmental remediation survey could take up to six months to complete.

Dennis says the city is considering having a third party review the results to make sure the best decision about the future of city hall is made.
