BAYOU CORNE - The company responsible for the ever-expanding sinkhole in Assumption Parish has delivered 91 settlement offers to Bayou Corne residents.

Texas Brine has reached out to homeowners in Bayou Corne to negotiate potential property buyouts.  

Of the 91 offers made recently, 28 were accepted by property owners.  Some locals have responded with counter-offers, which require further discussion.  Even some of those have been approved by the company.

The company plans to spend $5.5 million, an average of $40,250 for each residence.  Some have said the money isn't enough.

Texas Brine has until Monday to discuss settlements directly with homeowners in the Bayou Corne area.
