LIVINGSTON - People in the unincorporated community of Satsuma need about 100 signatures to get their dream of becoming a city on a ballot.
The "Save Satsuma" group started their incorporation campaign about a year ago. Leaders say their goal is to have a voice in decision making in Livingston Parish.
Group leaders say they felt the parish council was making decisions on things like zoning without allowing someone representing the now-unincorporated area to have a voice.
Save Satsuma spokesman H.L. Arledge says they have 1,023 registered voters in Satsuma and need just 256 verified signatures to get on November's ballot. He says they're about 100 signatures from that goal.
