WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis said the city will continue its rental inspection program despite an Indiana Supreme Court ruling.

As we previously reported, it ruled that all Indiana municipalities are subject to the state's $5 cap on annual rental property registration fees.

West Lafayette used to be exempt from this state law due to it being a college town.

Mayor Dennis said there are steps to make sure the revenue program continues to run in his city. \

"We're looking at additional revenue," said Mayor Dennis. "We are looking at ways to basically check other department's budgets to see where we can actually have some latitude to apply some of that revenue toward this program."

Bloomington was the other city with this exemption.
