Lafayette City-Parish Pres. Joey Durel says he will not veto the Sunbeam Lane waste facility ordinance. Without his signature, the ordinance is effective Saturday. At its Oct. 18 meeting, the council voted to ban any new waste transfer facilities in the parish. The ordinance, proposed by Councilman Brandon Shelvin, specifically targeted the Sunbeam construction site. Residents have protested its location.
