This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: Indiana’s federal unemployment pandemic benefits end next month, as Gov. Eric Holcomb underlines unfilled jobs across the state. How do Crawfordsville employers and potential employees view the state of the job market, and what’s the most accurate way to gauge how and why hiring seems more difficult?

In our talk with Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton, we’ll discuss the challenges of driving economic development when companies interested in coming to the area have specific property requirements that can’t be met. What can the city do to continue attracting a range of businesses to invest in Crawfordsville?

Plus, a COVID-19 update, and the opening of a new city park.
