Lafayette Boundary Ordinance Up For Adoption
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — The Lafayette City-Parish Council is expected Tuesday to consider adopting an ordinance that would start the process of resetting the boundary line between Lafayette and Vermilion parishes.
City-Parish Attorney Mike Hebert said during a Jan. 21 meeting that state law requires that Lafayette Consolidated Government fix a time and place to start the running of the boundary.
The Advertiser reports the ordinance sets the time and place as 10 a.m. Sept. 15 at the La. 92 bridge at Granges Coulee, west of Maurice. It also appropriates $30,000 for additional surveying and research to re-establish the boundary line with Vermilion Parish east of the Vermilion River.
Councilman Don Bertrand contends that errors were made in redrawing the boundary line as part of a lawsuit several years ago.
