WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A new year means it's time to pick up the pace on planning a new city hall in West Lafayette.

The Morton Community Center was closed on Tuesday due to a number of issues related to the cold.

City offices have been located there since 2014. That's because mold was discovered at the old Navajo Street location.

Mayor John Dennis said now that a new year is underway, it's time to really start planning for a new city hall. He said the city will start gathering public input to get a better idea for a location, among other things.

"Then we'll go ahead and move forward from that. Obviously, based upon what's been going on in this building, we'd like to move pretty quickly," said Dennis. "That will all take time to get everything squared away and, obviously, it will take time to arrange the funding."

Mayor Dennis said right now, there is no set timeline to open the new city hall.
