Citizen group to look at Lafayette finances

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Lafayette City-Parish Council wants a group of residents to dig into the finances of local government and offer insight on how to keep up with rising expenses for public safety, roads, recreation and a long list of other needs in Lafayette.

At Tuesday's council meeting, The Advocate reports Chairman Kevin Naquin announced the formation of what's being called a "Future Needs/Funding Sources Committee."

Naquin said the plan would give a group of residents an insider's view of the city-parish budget and how each department operates and then have them make recommendations.

Naquin said there are no preconceived ideas on what might emerge and there was no mention Tuesday of any possible tax hikes or budget cuts.
