Durel Says He Won’t Go Against Lafayette City-Parish Council On Garbage Transfer Facilities Ordinance
Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel announced today that he will NOT veto the ordinance disallowing any garbage transfer facilities in Lafayette Parish, whether currently proposed or in the future. The City-Parish Council voted unanimously at their Oct. 18 meeting to pass the ordinance. Durel says even though he doesn't support the Council's decision, he believes "a veto would be a futile gesture that would force useless, contentious and divisive override session of the Council." Durel says "anything said in that override session could be used against us in a lawsuit."
