A move to reestablish the Eunice Public Library gained traction at Tuesday’s city meeting as aldermen approved a pair of ordinances — one to repeal an ordinance forming the Opelousas-Eunice system and the other to reestablish the Eunice library.
Mayor Scott Fontenot said, “This came up a couple of years back. When I was on the council I brought this up to Mayor (Rusty) Moody and unfortunately we didn’t get far with that.”
Fontenot said, “In my personal opinion I believe the city of Eunice can run a library on its own.”
