Livingston charter commission offers minor changes

LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) - The Livingston Parish Charter Review Commission has agreed on a handful of minor tweaks for the charter provisions dealing with the parish council.

The Advocate reports Tuesday marked the commission's third meeting but the first time the group delved into the task of reviewing the parish government's founding document for possible improvements.

Recommended changes will be presented to the Parish Council for a decision on which, if any, will be placed on a future ballot for voter approval.

The biggest tweak the group recommended Tuesday was to lengthen the amount of time the Council Clerk's Office has to present a copy of a newly adopted ordinance to the parish president for signature or veto.

The Home Rule Charter gives the clerk three days, excluding weekends and holidays, to do so.
