LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A proposal to replace Lafayette's
consolidated city-parish government with separate governments for
the city and the parish could go before voters as early as October.
A charter commission formed by the City-Parish Council to
explore changes in local government recommended in April that
voters should decide whether to undo the 1996 merger of Lafayette's
city and parish governments.
The Lafayette council is scheduled to decide Tuesday whether to
put the issue to voters in October, according to The Advocate.
