THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Lafourche Parish Council is expected to consider a measure Aug. 25 to outlaw swimming at or near parish-owned or operated boat launches.
The Daily Comet reports the proposal provides that violators could be fined up to $500 and be jailed for 30 days.
Councilman Phillip Gouaux authored the proposal. He said swimming near launches is a particular problem in the areas around Lockport.
