Assumption Parish emergency officials not planning to attend an unofficial community meeting
Assumption Parish emergency officials say they will not be attending an unofficial community meeting.
The meeting was set up by community activist John Achee Junior for Thursday. It was supposed to give people living in the area a chance to get questions answered by officials.
However parish leaders say they were not told about the meeting until yesterday morning. But Achee says that his request for a meeting was not meant to be a burden on leaders. He says six weeks is way to long to have gone without giving residents an update on the sinkhole and bubble situation.
Achee says the the meeting is still scheduled for Thursday night at St Joseph The Worker Church in Pierre Part starting at 6:30.
