Meeting gets contentious
NAPOLEONVILLE — Assumption Parish Police Jury President Martin “Marty” Triche exchanged sharp words Wednesday night during a community meeting on the parish’s 8.6-acre sinkhole with a resident who asked whether Triche had any personal financial interests in dirt-hauling related to the response effort.
The episode, which led to the resident’s removal by a sheriff’s deputy at Triche’s direction but Triche’s later apology for the outburst, occurred about 11 minutes into the meeting before about 150 people. The session also revealed several new details on the sinkhole and the multi-level response to its effects. . . .
“State Sen. Rick Ward III, D-Maringouin, told residents a joint legislative hearing on the sinkhole will be held at 10 a.m. Feb. 19 at the State Capitol, and he and other legislators urged residents to attend.
“And any of you that can come, we sure hope that you can be there, and we’ll listen as long as you want to speak,” Ward told the group.”
