WEST LAFAYETTE WILL NAME WELLNESS CENTER FOR MAYOR DENNIS
In Mayor John Dennis’ farewell tour, one month left in a 16-year run in West Lafayette, the city council this week is expected to name the West Lafayette Wellness Center in his honor.
The move comes after council members and other city officials considered other naming opportunities to acknowledge the four-term mayor, who did not run for re-election in 2023, Council President Peter Bunder said.
