Proposed Watson pit sparks heated debate

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 23:42 //

LIVINGSTON — A discussion of a land use plan that could help stop gravel pits like one planned in Watson from cropping up in residents’ backyards quickly turned ugly Thursday night, when Parish President Layton Ricks and Councilman Jim Norred got into a heated argument over who dropped the ball in implementing the parish’s master plan.

Norred said he learned at 3:15 p.m. Thursday that the parish already had a planning manager, a position he thought was vacant or nonexistent, and asked Ricks what the manager had been doing so far if not working to implement the master plan the council adopted more than a year ago.
