New Roads, Pointe Coupee Parish may go to court over civic center
NEW ROADS- The city of New Roads and the Pointe Coupee Parish Police Jury may be headed to court over the operation of the William H. Scott Civic Center.
Mayor Robert Myer sent a letter in mid-June to the Police Jury in which he threatened to take the parish to court to recoup $8,500 he says the parish owes in insurance payments on the Civic Center and to ask a judge to order the parish to pay half of the center's annual operating costs.
Myer says he wants the court to give the city full control of the facility's day-to-day operation.
Police Jury President Melanie Bueche said she is hopeful things will work themselves out.
The Police Jury is set to discuss the matter at its meeting Tuesday.
