This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: it’s one week before Thanksgiving, and healthcare systems and COVID-19 testing capacities across west central Indiana are under increasing strain as case numbers keep going up. How are local officials and medical providers impacted by what’s happening across the region, in addition to what's happening close to home?

This week in our talk with Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton, we’ll discuss what happens if Montgomery County – currently in Indiana’s orange category on the state’s COVID-19 metric map – makes the shift to red. What restrictions or closures will come into play, and how will the city keep citizens informed about what to expect?

Plus, more on plans for Crawfordsville's CARES Act funding in the coming months.
