Harsh winter requiring more money for Lafayette

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The effects of a harsh winter are still being felt into the fall.

The Lafayette City Council is being asked to approve a $500,000 fund transfer for road projects through the rest of the fall.

Mayor Tony Roswarski said because of the aggressive work crews have done all summer, and with more work to go the money will be necessary to finish several projects including on Ferry and 11th streets.

“It’s not money coming out of our rainy day fund,” said Roswarski. “It’s just money that we’ve actually saved through other ways, through not buying quite as much equipment to make sure we get the roads in good shape before winter.”

The city council is slated to vote on the transfer at its meeting Monday.
