Tonight Lafayette City-Parish Council will vote on an ordinance that will let experts examine and determine where the actual parish line is between Lafayette and Vermilion parish.  Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux feels this is an opportunity to make things right, and residents in both parishes will feel the affects.

"It certainly is going to increase capacity as far as the parish boundary is concerned, and of course there are tax dollars associated with that obviously that's no secret that whether the taxes are paid in one parish or the other.  That is going to be impacted," says Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux, District 4.

Councilman Boudreaux also says the rate of taxes that will be paid will also impact residents.  This ordinance will allocate $30,000 for further surveying and research to re-establish the location of the parish boundary.
