The closure of Interstate 65 northbound has proven a hassle for many a driver over the last week. But it’s hurting businesses along the route, too – including at several Lafayette exits.

This week on Ask The Mayor, we find out what Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski is hearing from business owners and whether he thinks INDOT is working fast enough to solve the problem.

We also talk crime on today’s program. There have been a number of shootings in Lafayette lately, often between people who knew one another.

So should that worry city residents? And does a cop-turned-mayor work differently when crime becomes a concern?
