Lafayette, Vermilion Border Dispute Heats Up

A ten-year-old agreement between Vermilion and Lafayette Parishes over the border between the two is out after a vote by the Lafayette City Parish Council Tuesday night.

The council voted unanimously to toss out the agreement.

Councilman Don Bertrand, who has spent considerable time investigating the situation, argues that agreement gave too much land to Vermilion Parish.

Bertrand contends that the line that was drawn during the last agreement did not take into account all historical records, and he adds that recent research shows where the line should really be.

While Tuesday’s council action doesn’t move the line, it does mean that the issue is back in legal dispute since both parishes can’t agree on where the line should be.

The decision may end up in the hands of a judge or the Louisiana Legislature.
