Port Allen City Councilman Hugh “Hootie” Riviere, who banded together with fellow councilmen Garry Hubble and R.J. Loupe to bring a lawsuit against Port Allen Mayor Demetric Slaughter, publicly commented for the first time since the July 2 ruling.
The town of Addis approved a preliminary plat during their regular town meeting Wednesday for Sunset Lakes, an addition to Sunset Place, a new subdivision on the north end of the town.
Brusly Mayor Joey Normand said Monday night after the regular town hall meeting, that he held a special meeting last week informing the council members of what it will take to move forward with the construction of a $3 million police station.
UPDATE- A July 2 court ruling will prohibit Port Allen Mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter from receiving more than $400 a month in car allowance, from continuing to pay her attorneys’ fees with city money unless approved by the city council and from continuing to receive a higher-than-budgeted salary until the city council appropriates more funds or she obtains a court order.
The splash pads are officially open, according to Parish President Riley “Pee Wee” Berthelot.
