There is still debate over whether a 223-acre tract of land between La. Hwy. 76 and La. Hwy. 413 is residential or agricultural.

The issue first came to the parish council’s attention when Allen Herring requested a rezoning of his property, one of the lots on the tract of land, from residential to agricultural.

Real estate agent Skipper Grady said the parish made a mistake in labeling the entire tract residential, saying that only 27 acres were supposed to be residential, for a subdivision called Acadian Bayou Estates, and the rest was supposed to be agricultural.

Sheriff’s Office tax fails in close election

Written by Aaron Williams on . Posted in Local

The tax, which was voted against by more than 55 percent of voters, was proposed by Cazes, who said the added income to the sheriff’s office would have helped his office cover their budget without having to dip further into surplus funds.
