Monroe looking to Annex areas around Ouachita Parish

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- Monroe is trying to grow, that's why they are looking to annex surrounding areas in Ouachita Parish.

One sub-division gaining attention from Monroe and the Town of Sterlington is Frenchman's Bend.

Mayor Mayo says the city has reached out to the subdivision in the past, but he's convinced that those living there aren't ready to make a decision.

If Monroe were to annex Frenchman's Bend, Mayo believes it would fall right in line with the city's growth pattern.

The mayor believes by annexing surrounding areas in the parish along Hwy 165 it will cut down the confusion with people when it comes to public services.

Mayo says pending a passing of the community's infrastructure, they're always welcomed to become a part of Monroe.
