WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis focused on unity in his State of the City Address.
He addressed the city council Monday night.
Dennis talked about offensive banners found outside the Unitarian Universalist Church last month. He said it was incredible to see the community unite afterwards, proving the good outweighs the bad.
He said it's important to stress the city will not tolerate that type of negative behavior.
"This isn't West Lafayette. This isn't how we treat our citizens. This isn't how we treat our houses of worship. It's offensive to us as local government, it's offensive to us as a community, and it's mostly offensive to those who are deeply impacted by it," said Dennis.
Dennis also touched on various projects throughout the city. He said in 2018, work will continue on the overall State Street Project, the new rec center and a new city hall.
