ASCENSION - Parish President Clint Cointment will stay involved with parish drainage projects after reaching an agreement with council members who voted to remove him from the drainage board.. 
In a press conference Wednesday, the drainage board announced their new agreement with Cointment where he will remain as the director of drainage. However, they will be hiring an expert who will come up with a plan that best suits the parish.
Cointment was originally ousted after a contentious council vote in June, which prompted recall efforts aimed at multiple council members involved. The parish president received a letter last week saying he would officially be out as head of drainage starting in November.
As part of the new agreement announced Wednesday, Cointment will also have no termination powers on the drainage board.
