What’s Next After Travel Trailer Ban Vetoed In Lafayette Parish?
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel vetoed regulations that the council approved last month to ban the use of travel trailers as permanent homes in rural Lafayette Parish, saying the measure was too broad.
The Advocate reports the council could vote Tuesday to override that veto, but Durel's action seems likely to stand, because six votes are needed to trump his veto and the travel trailer ordinance passed Oct. 16 by only a 5-4 vote of the council.
In a written veto message, Durel left open the possibility of tweaking the travel trailer regulations.
The regulations would have banned a travel trailer from being used as a residence for more than 180 days in any calendar year in unincorporated areas of the parish.
