LIVINGSTON - The parish council scheduled a late-September meeting to discuss with voters their thoughts on using $1 million – or possibly more – on both road re-construction and land acquisitions for a future extension of Juban Road.

The parish council had originally approved using the extra money from sales taxes to do more work on roads deemed the worst in the parish. But, the latest maneuver by the council would split the money to pay for both construction and land.

Planners suggested the parish to look for ways to increase or improve north-south highways.

Earlier this year, contractors started work with $4.47 million. The project is 80 percent complete, and more work will be done in 2016.

A public hearing was set for September 24th.
