This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, summer is almost here, and more and more of Indiana is reopening. As the state makes changes to the Back on Track stages, cities must respond. How can local officials make the best plan for the safety of residents when the future is uncertain?

In our talk with Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton, we’ll discuss the city’s approach to opening up outdoor spaces and events in the coming month, and if the mayor thinks Crawfordsville will be ready to open at full capacity on July 4.

Plus, how an outbreak among employees at an area lighting company holds a larger lesson for residents about social distancing in and out of the workplace -- and how the city is handling the possibility of utility disconnections later in June.
