The Iberia Parish Council offered its sympathy to families and friends of two parish Public Works employees fatally struck Tuesday by a vehicle as they worked on US 90.
"On behalf of the entire Iberia Parish Council, staff, and Iberia Parish Government employees and co-workers, it is with profound sorrow and heartfelt sympathy that we offer our prayers and support...," begins a statement issued Wednesday by the Iberia Parish Council in response to the deaths of Jody Anthony of St. Martinville and Ross Migues of Lydia, who are acknowledged by the council as having "succumbed to their injuries as they were performing their duties as Public Works employees."
Council Chairman Roger Duncan, who authored the statement, ends his statement with a public appeal.
"The Council offers its sincere condolences to their families and friends, as well as their co-workers in the Public Works Department, and hope that they will find the courage and strength to sustain them during this sorrowful time in their lives. We request that the media respect the privacy of their families during the days following the tragedy and continue to provide support and comfort to them in your thoughts," the statement concludes.
