With the Fourth of July on Monday, fireworks will be legal to use until Tuesday, Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot said. Fireworks can be used in the city from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. “Bottle rockets or penny rockets are prohibited at all times including the possession and sale of them,” he said.
The Eunice city budget for the fiscal year beginning Friday is little changed from this year. Steven Moosa, CPA, said, “Overall the budget has stayed flat for 2017 compared to 2016.”
As LSU Eunice head basketball ccoach Amanda Clemons enters her third season with the Lady Bengals, she has great expectations for her sophomore returning players. “We are definitely going to have a lot of talent there is no doubt about that,” Clemons said.
