The St. Martin Parish Council approved on Tuesday an ordinance to authorize the parish government to pay $450,000 to the St. Landry Parish Fire Protection District #5. In exchange, St. Martin Parish would receive a 50-year lease to place fire units and crew at a new proposed fire station in Arnaudville, The Daily Iberian reports.

That ordinance was approved unanimously by the council. The $450,000 will go towards paying for a new station to house those units, according to the paper.
