Youngsville-Broussard continue annexation battle

A state judge has declined to toss out a lawsuit filed by Youngsville to block an annexation by the neighboring city of Broussard.
The Advocate reports Youngsville filed a lawsuit this year to contest Broussard's annexation of a 40-foot-by-40-foot parcel.
Broussard officials argue the small tract, an island of sorts beyond the existing Broussard city limits, is needed for a sewer lift station to extend service to new commercial and residential developments, both inside and outside the city.
Youngsville counters the annexation is an effort by Broussard to claim a piece of property that will serve as a roadblock to make it more difficult for Youngsville to annex land in the area.
District Judge John Trahan ruling Monday that Youngsville can move forward with the lawsuit.
