Ask The Mayor: West Lafayette's John Dennis On A "Watch And Wait" Approach To The Mask Mandate


This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: West Lafayette’s mask mandate could be lifted next month. How will the city continue to transition away from COVID-19 restrictions as summer approaches and COVID vaccinations become even easier to obtain, for an even broader range of age groups?  

In our talk with West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis, we’ll discuss how the city plans to spend funds from the American Rescue Plan, and how local decisions about public health emergencies could play out in the future if Indiana’s legislature overrides the governor’s veto of a bill that places restrictions on the power of health departments.

Plus, listener questions on the opening of a new food pantry and the future of West Lafayette's specialized class offerings.
