- PARISH PRESIDENT MEETS WITH CPRA HEAD AND LEVEE DISTRICT LEADERS
June 29, 2016 PARISH PRESIDENT ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING LEGAL COUNSEL FOR COASTAL USE PERMITS Mathews, LA - Lafourche Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle issued the following statement regarding Tuesday night's action by the Lafourche Parish Council to retain counsel regarding coastal use permits: "I would like to make it clear that Lafourche Parish has no intention of filing suit against any oil company. We have never considered joining or filing a lawsuit. The council was simply asked to retain legal representation to assist in quantifying potential damages the parish may have incurred through coastal use permits and activities associated with them. The parish needs to preserve its rights should the State of Louisiana bring forward some sort of settlement with the energy industry and retaining counsel allows us to preserve those rights." "Here in Lafourche Parish we pride ourselves on fueling the nation through our role as the services hub for the offshore oil and gas industry. We take this responsibility seriously and look forward to many more prosperous years working as a leader in that role."
