Without fanfare, the St. Landry Parish Council staked out a new path for development when it approved three ordinances to govern waste disposal in the parish.
The ordinances are in response to a proposed wastewater injection well site near the St. Landry Parish Solid Waste Landfill at Beggs.
The site is in Harold Taylor’s sixth district that includes north St. Landry Parish.
“This is the beginning of a comprehensive look at land use in this parish,” Taylor said.
