This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced this week that statewide COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted next month – though local leaders and businesses can still maintain stricter guidelines. Will cities and counties follow the state’s lead, or hold onto area restrictions for the time being?

In our talk with Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton, we’ll discuss how expanding vaccine eligibility to Hoosiers 16 years of age and older will impact the local agencies rolling out vaccinations across the state. How much capacity do providers have to absorb bigger numbers – and how long will it take to reach everyone?

Plus, the latest on the Mayor’s Special Commission on Racial Equality.
