Ask The Mayor: Crawfordsville's Todd Barton On How To Attract Big Business


This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: a production facility for Tempur Sealy is headed to Montgomery County, along with hundreds of new jobs. How will this investment impact Crawfordsville residents, the local job market, and current and future businesses in the area?

In our talk with Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton, we’ll discuss the complexities of lifting school mask mandates when some students are vaccinated against COVID-19 – and some are not. And we’ll talk about how a gap in childhood vaccinations --and other health-related issues -- have health departments playing catch-up after a year spent handling the coronavirus.

Plus, a progress report on the city’s fireworks ordinance.
