Iberia Parish Council approves $50,000 for NAP

News Update: 

The Iberia Parish Council voted unanimously last night to officially approve a $50,000 donation to the New Acadia Project, which it had first authorized last week.

Mayor Al Broussard of Loreauville, Chairman of the New Acadia Project Steering Committee, was instrumental in requesting the needed funds.

Following an earlier $25,000 contribution by the McIlhenny Family Foundation, plus other donations from the private and public sectors, the New Acadia Project Steering Committee has now raised well over the $77,248 for a Cooperative Agreement with UL Lafayette
