LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Lafayette City-Parish Council's decision to void an agreement with Vermilion Parish on the location of the parish line could re-ignite a dispute that had lain dormant for a decade.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to toss out the 10-year-old boundary agreement with the Vermilion Parish Police Jury.

The council's action has little immediate effect because the drawing of a boundary between parishes requires more than a decision by just one parish.

Lafayette Councilman Don Bertrand said he hopes to set up a meeting with Vermilion Parish officials and present them with research he believes shows definitively that the parish line should be shifted south, farther into Vermilion Parish.
