This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: Montgomery County’s health department issued a plea to residents this week to get vaccinated against COVID-19, as the school year gets closer and the Delta variant continues its spread. After the Indiana Department of Health elevated the county into its orange category this week, how do local officials plan to slow the rising tide of infections among the unvaccinated?

In our talk with Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton, we’ll discuss a possible pay raise for the mayor as the city looks at a proposed budget. How does the salary align with other mayoral paychecks, and how will it impact future office holders?

Plus, Montgomery County and Crawfordsville embark on the planning process for state READI funding, and more on continued business expansions.
