Iberia Parish Ends Consolidation Talks

The Iberia Parish Council has voted 7-6 to end discussion of a proposed consolidation of government agencies and services parish-wide.   

A majority vote of eight council members was needed Wednesday to move forward Councilman David Ditch's resolution that could create a unified municipal-parish government.

Ditch said his resolution did not mean he was calling an election, but that he wanted District Attorney Phil Haney's Office and state Senator Fred Mills' office to send lawyers to the next council meeting to discuss the consolidation process.
