More money for road repairs in Livingston
LIVINGSTON - Parish leaders dedicated another $1 million to the road overlay project Thursday night.
Earlier this year, the parish council agreed to spend $4.47 million to re-pave forty roads. The extra money will increase the total amount spent to around $5.5 million. It was not immediately clear what roads will be fixed with the additional money.

Here are the roads on the original list:
District 1 - South Satsuma Drive

District 3 - Dunn Road, Linder Road, Landsdown Drive
District 4 - Jason Drive, Pine Bluff Road, Lynn Drive, Darrin Drive, Leigh Drive, Colonial Drive, South Redwood Drive, Abyss Lane, Red Willow Drive, Willow Point Drive, Cypress Lake Drive
