Iberia Parish president vetoes election resolution

Posted: Updated:

NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) - Iberia Parish President Errol Romero vetoed a resolution which would have allowed residents to vote on the rededication of 1.75 mills to help pay for a hurricane protection system.

The Advocate reports  the resolution would have allowed voters to decide whether to move 1.75 mills out of the 6 mills collected by the parish library system and use it to pay for a 26-mile levee around the coastline.

The chairman of the Iberia Parish Levee, Hurricane and Conservation District, Ronald Gonsoulin, released a statement disagreeing with Romero's veto.

Gonsoulin said the levee board would continue to search for funding for the levee.
