WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The West Lafayette City Council is beginning its 2020 season with some veterans and rookies.

As we previously reported on Election Day, there are three new city council members.

District 3 is Shannon Kang and district 5 is Kathy Parker and an at large seat belongs to James Blanco.

Councilor Norris Wang took his oath of office Monday evening.

West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis said this council doesn't have as many big challenges as years past.

He said it will be good to focus on what the voters want.

"What we have been through over the past 10 years at least is epic," said Dennis, "It generally does not happen in a city our size. Now we are going back to the good work of serving our people correctly, that we are transparent and doing what the voters elected us to do."

Dennis said the council will endure a learning curve but will be cooperative and diligent.
