Durel criticizes consolidated government

LAFAYETTE — City-Parish President Joey Durel railed against Lafayette’s consolidated form of government Monday, telling a committee exploring city-parish finances that he could not support any future tax proposal without changes to the current structure of local government.

Durel, who is serving his third and final term, spoke Monday to the city-parish Future Needs/Funding Sources Committee, a citizens advisory group created by the City-Parish Council in February to map out strategies to address the needs of local government.

The committee is expected to give its recommendations later this year, but Durel said he would be wary of any proposals to seek new tax revenue if efforts are not made to put a taller wall between the “city” and “parish” sides of city-parish government.
