LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - More than five months into their tenure, the Lafayette Charter Commission is inching toward coming up with proposed changes to city-parish government.
Since early November, The Advertiser reports the nine-member commission has decided to lean toward a proposed model that would keep public services consolidated but create two councils, one for
Lafayette residents and another for residents in unincorporated areas of the parish.
During Monday's meeting, the commission addressed issues such as how council members should participate in a group insurance program and how council members' pay should be increased.
The commission has until April to develop its final
recommendations and present them to the City-Parish Council.
