Parish President Joey Durel can be seen on GMA every Thursday around 6:40am to answer your questions. This week Joey Durel answered the following question...
From Nita Piccione: Does the city utilize solar power? What are some examples?
Also, the Lafayette Consolidate Council will hold a public hearing on the 2013-14 Proposed Budget Thursday night at 5:30 in the Council Chamber at City Hall. The hearing gives residents the opportunity to voice their opinions on where taxpayer dollars are spent in the upcoming fiscal year.
Navigating such an expansive budget can be daunting and, often times, confusing, so LCG has also put together a guide to help people understand the budget. It explains not only the budget, but also where exactly the money comes from and how they are allowed to spend it. Here's a handy link: A Citizen's Guide
