A landowner is fighting annexation into Youngsville corporate limits.
Lorena Rose, LLC, is suing to prevent the city from including the land in an annexation approved by the council last month. The landowner says it petitioned Broussard in 2011 to annex the land, but the town's engineer's illness and eventual death stalled the move. The lawsuit states that desire to be in Broussard, their previous objections to the Youngsville annexation, and an unwanted tax burden caused by the Youngsville annexation should nullify the move.
KATC spoke with Youngsville Mayor Wilson Viator today. Viator declined comment pending litigation.
No court date has been set.
