WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – By the end of this week all city offices will be out of West Lafayette City Hall.

The move comes about a month after a burst water pipe caused mold to develop in the building. The engineering and development offices are the only ones left in the Navajo Street location. Those departments will move Thursday and Friday to the Morton Center.

West Lafayette Police Deputy Chief Chris Leroux has been working to move all offices out of the building. Now, the city must find new locations for public meetings.

“It really is a matter of it being ADA accessible, and our ability to record those meetings and document them as required by law,” said Leroux.

He said the city is looking at rooms in the West Lafayette Public Library and the Morton Center. Leroux said he hopes to have an announcement about meeting rooms by the end of the week.
