This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we’re talking about what’s going to happen when the dust clears from the coming months’ construction. Will we see a new, or just a slightly improved, Lafayette? When it comes to improving quality of life, how swiftly is the city prepared to act?

We ask Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski how the city balances cleaning up the streets while launching a string of projects this past year, meant to attract people to Lafayette. But once they’re here, how do you get them to stay?

Plus, we’ll talk about the city’s drug task force and how the city’s transient rental policy – which applies to short-term stays through platforms such as Airbnb – measures up at the state level.
