As Parish President Bill Fontenot began his second term Monday, he reminded about 200 people attending inaugural ceremony that four years ago St. Landry Parish was known for its bad roads.
The Eunice Board of Aldermen voted to have its legal counsel draw up an ordinance to create a planning commission.
The board also asked for discussions with Steven Moosa, a Eunice accountant who advises the city on its budget, to see if the city can afford to pay for a plan.
