The city of West Lafayette has spent significant time in recent months pondering new rules for different types of transportation. First it was electric scooters. This month on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we discuss the push to regulate the pedal-powered beer wagons that could soon be navigating the city’s streets and the addition of a term to city law that strikes fear in the hearts of cyclists: dooring.

Also in our conversation with West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis, what’s left for him to accomplish in his upcoming fourth term? He wasn’t challenged on May’s primary ballot, so does that mean people are uniformly happy with his leadership, or is it part and parcel of a larger story in this year’s municipal elections in the city where there were no contested races, causing the county clerk to open zero polling places in the city?
