A request for an Attorney General’s opinion on the use of money from the district governing St. Luke Hospital raised fears among some Arnaudville residents that it was a tactic to delay an agreement to disband the district.
The item was on a special meeting of the St. Landry Parish Council on Wednesday.
On a 7-6 vote on Jan. 18 council approved an agreement with the St. Martin Parish Council to dissolve the First Hospital District of the Parishes of St. Landry and St. Martin.
