New Iberia Fire Chief Ronald Bourque is facing a five-day suspension without pay.
Last night, the New Iberia Fire and Police Civil Service Board recommended Bourque be suspended for allegedly dodging a subpoena for a civil service hearing.
Mayor Hilda Curry must approve the suspension before it takes effect. Curry told KATC this morning that she "will look at everything before making a decision" about the suspension.
KATC attempted to reach Bourque via telephone at his office this afternoon. He was unavailable for comment.
