The committee will not discuss or address any matters related to the governmental structure, the Charter, consolidation or de-consolidation. The citizen members were selected based on their involvement, in various capacities, with both the city and parish, and have a vested interest in the community. The three (3) Council Members will serve in an advisory role only and will not have a vote in the final decision. The public's attendance and input are welcomed.
