LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - From fixing sidewalks and traffic signals, to requiring licenses for moped drivers, Lafayette residents had a chance to speak and gripe face-to-face with their mayor this week.
It was Tony Roswarski's first Mayor's Night In in more than a year. For two hours Thursday, he spoke to residents about their concerns.
Eight people called to set up an appointment.
Roswarski says after having them regularly, he discontinued them because of poor turnout and the ability of people to reach him using email and the Mayor's Action Center. But after getting a few requests recently, he decided to try it again for people who can't stop by during normal business hours.
"People will just stop me at the grocery store, at a ball game, at the gas station, and it would just give people a more formal opportunity if they want to come down in the evening to do that. If there is something they want try to get taken care of," Roswarski says.
Roswarski adds, based on turnout, he may start having Mayor's Night In on a more regular basis.
