Parish Border Dispute Continues Between Lafayette And Vermilion Parishes

Coming up this Tuesday, the Lafayette City Parish Council has a scheduled vote on a measure dealing with where the boundary line should be drawn between Lafayette and Vermilion parishes.

It’s becoming a hotly debated issue, but one that representatives from both sides that had been settled with an agreement 10 years ago.

Lafayette City Parish Councilman Don Bertrand says the proposal before the council next week would undo the settlement made a decade ago.

Bertrand contends that research shows that the boundrary line needs to be moved because too much land was given to Vermilon parish during that settlement.

What is not clear at this point is what happens if the council votes to undo the 10-year-old agreement, as Vermilion Parish says they will enfore that agreement.

Vermilion Parish was carved out of Lafayette Parish in 1844.
