A petition to recall long-time Port Allen Councilman R.J. Loupe failed last week after it did not meet a deadline with the WBR Parish Registrar of Voters office.
It was only two personal transmitters, which look a lot like wristwatches, but Port Allen firefighters participating in a two-day training program last week scoured for the hidden transmitters throughout the city like they were attached to missing children.
The Addis Town Council passed an ordinance Wednesday, March 5, at the Addis Regular Meeting of the Mayor and Town Council, that would allow certain properties in the town limits to be zoned as minor subdivisions.
Six houses currently being built on Court Street have caused some Port Allen residents to call for changes to the city’s zoning ordinance and to accuse the interim mayor of using her office for personal gain.
