PATTERSON –– City Council members voted Monday at a special meeting to move the Boy Scout Hut from Morey Park.
Mayor Rodney Grogran called the special meeting to take final action on the hut.
“We felt like the whole plan for the park would be better served for all citizens of Patterson without the Boy Scout hut obstructing the view and things like that in the park,” said Patterson City Council member Larry Mendoza.
State Sen. Bret Allain, R-Franklin, says the Legislature will have to hold a special session next year solely to focus on the 2016 proposed budget to iron out budget issues before the regular session.
During Monday’s St. Mary Parish Council of Governments meeting, Allain said state legislators have a tough task ahead of them to fix the state’s budget issues. In 2016, the Legislature will have to hold a special session “just to deal with the budget” ahead of the regular session, Allain said.
