An ordinance the West Lafayette City Council will consider Monday calls for the removal of any vehicle or equipment parked in new emergency snow routes.

West Lafayette street commissioner Ben Anderson says the rule would apply when two inches of snow is on the ground or is forecast to fall.

"Weather forecasters do the best they can to predict," Anderson says. "You can have a slight change in the wind direction and it can totally affect how much snow we get."

West Lafayette developers are making progress on plans for Chauncey Hill Mall development. As new construction begins, local officials are going over comments received during last month’s public comment period.

Area Plan Commission member Ryan O’Gara, who is in charge of the plan, says they received some proposals for high-rises and other housing options.

He says the plan can provide a solution for Purdue University’s housing shortage.
