Lafayette, Vermilion border dispute heats up

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The border between Lafayette and Vermilion parishes is once again in dispute after the Lafayette City-Parish Council voted unanimously to toss out a ten-year-old agreement with the Vermilion Parish Police Jury on where the line should be.

Councilman Don Bertrand, who pushed the measure, has long argued that the agreement gave too much land to Vermilion Parish because the line was based on incomplete historical records.

Bertrand said recent research has uncovered information that points to where the line should really be.

The Advocate reports decision Tuesday does not move the boundary but rather brings its location back into legal dispute, because both parishes do not agree on the location of the border. It will likely take action by the state Legislature or a judge to set it.
