Budget bomb fizzles

What promised to be an explosive meeting on the Eunice budget passed quietly, but the controversy promises to continue.
The city’s budget for fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, passed the Board of Alderman with comment coming only from Mayor Scott Fontenot.
Police Chief Randy Fontenot had questioned the budget after it was tabled in June with aldermen citing concerns over police department overtime.
