Livingston Parish's 10-member Charter Review Commission is half of its former self after two more commissioners, including the chairman, resigned. Only five commissioners remain.
Chairman Jimmy Durbin and Commissioner Todd Caruso called it quits before roll call Tuesday, saying they no longer wanted to be associated with a group they say has strayed from its purpose of improving the parish's Home Rule Charter.
Unsure whether five commissioners would constitute a quorum, the remaining group held an open discussion of the resignations without addressing the meeting agenda or taking any votes.
Parish Council Chairman Ricky Goff told The Advocate the council will consider appointing replacements on April 10 in hopes of filling enough seats for the group to move forward by its next meeting date of April 15.
