La PORTE — La Porte is in line to receive funds from a national opioid lawsuit settlement, and Mayor Tom Dermody called the opportunity “unique.”

“When it comes to drug trafficking, we have no mercy – at least I have no mercy. We have a police department that’s very focused on making life difficult on those that don’t want to follow the rules,” Dermody said at the Nov. 7 La Porte City Council meeting.
