Lafayette-Vermilion dispute continues to smolder

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette City-Parish Council is scheduled to consider a measure next month that would push the parish line a little farther into Vermilion Parish.

The Advocate
reports Vermilion Parish sees things a bit differently, and the issue seems unlikely to be resolved outside of a courtroom.

The City-Parish Council voted unanimously in October to back out of decade-old agreement with the Vermilion Parish Police Jury that had set the boundary and ended years of dispute over the parish line.

City-Parish Councilman Don Bertrand's proposal calls for adopting a new line on the west side of the Vermilion River, then to spend up to $30,000 for additional research on the parish boundary east of the Vermilion River, a portion of the Vermilion-Lafayette border that has not been as closely scrutinized.
