On Tuesday, the Lafayette City-Parish Council approved a resolution to eliminate free golf for officials.

The resolution, which was written and offered by Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux, eliminates a long-standing fee exemption for any elected or appointed official at Lafayette recreational facilities. 

The resolution has mostly been used at the city’s golf courses, where golfers who aren’t officials must pay green and cart fees, which vary by course. 

The resolution specifically mentions council members, the city-parish president and members of the city’s recreation board, but is clear that the council doesn’t want any officials getting free play. 

The resolution passed unanimously, the minutes of the meeting show.
