A plan floated by Lafayette Consolidated Government to pay for two extra city marshal deputy positions and have them provide security at Lafayette City Hall is dead.

In a press release, Lafayette City Marshal Reggie Thomas says he is not proceeding with that plan. The release says Thomas made his decision "after further review and discussion with the city administration."

According to the release, Thomas will continue to focus on his agency's accreditation, community relations, mentoring program, and other goals.
