© 2019 Town of Dayton, Indiana.

Our small-town values and city services combine to make Dayton, Indiana a desirable place to live. We are located one hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of Chicago. Interstate 65 is east of our western border, and the cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette, home to Purdue University, are just a few miles away. Hundreds of shops and restaurants are only minutes away via Indiana State Route 38. 

No, we do not have a stop light. We do have a wonderful elementary school and two churches and small businesses. The Town of Dayton has a history that spans 190 years. We have water and sewer services to every residence. Cable services, including fiber to home, are available throughout the town.

March 19, 2020

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 updates, and the situation remains very fluid. This week, we cancelled any public meeting scheduled for March, and we are now considering what additional safety measures we will be taking for April and beyond. It sounds like we’ll be dealing with this for some time.


A new Executive Order has been issued by Governor Holcomb and the Public Access Counselor has issued a statement regarding public access in the era of Coronavirus. Both documents allow the council some latitude in scheduling and conducting public meetings, and our attorney will be assisting us with our planning. We need to conduct the essential business of the town while taking all measures to keep everyone safe. We will update you when a policy has been established.


In the meantime, please closely follow the CDC guidelines and the recommendations contained in the governor’s Executive Order. 


We continue to do everything in our power to ensure the safety of residents, employees, and elected officials. As always, we encourage you to contact your elected officials (contact info is at the link above) with any concerns you may have.


We are providing useful links, including the Executive Order and the PAC statement on the page linked below, and we will provide updates as they become available.

Stay safe, Dayton!
