Lafayette Councils Set Joint Meeting To Override Guillory’s Veto

(opens in new window)

Previously, the councils had both passed an amended budget that did not include nearly a quarter of a million dollars in raises for top officials working for Lafayette Consolidated Government.

However, Guillory restored the raises to the budget using line-item veto powers. The City and Parish Councils have since come back and decided they would challenge that veto, holding a joint meeting to override that as the battle between Lafayette's legislative and executive branches rages on.
