Youngsville Councilman Matt Romero spoke with Rob and Bernie on Acadiana's Morning news about the City Council's tasks of protecting the safety of Acadiana and Louisiana'a fastest growing municipality.

Romero said the Youngsville Fire Department has "taken the back seat" to the city's police department, but the council is making moves to fund the growing city's fire protection.

At last night's Youngsville City Council meeting, Mayor Ken Ritter suggested, and the council subsequently approved, ear marking $300,000 to fund growth within the Youngsville fire department.

Romero told Rob an Bernie on Acadiana's Morning news today, the city's aldermen hope to buy a new fire truck for the department an build a new substation in the near future.

Youngsville residents may soon reminisce about the once popular TV show "Chips" as the council approved the purchase of two motorcycles at the request of Police Chief Rickey Boudreaux.

If any Youngsvile resident is in need of a venue for a volleyball or basketball game, the recently completed Youngsville Recreation Center is the place to be . Romero said more than 150 people attended a grand opening ceremony of the rec center.
