The Lafayette City-Parish Council is expected to begin interviewing the 40 applicants for the new
charter commission sometime within the next few weeks, with the goal of having the new board seated sometime in June.

Residents from all nine council districts turned in their applications before Tuesday's noon deadline.

The commission will be able to recommend changes to the charter, which has never been amended since going into effect in 1996.

In addition, it will be able to recommend abolishing the current form of local government and going back to separate city and parish systems.
