Broussard Council Approves Barricades; Demolishment


During tonight’s Broussard City Council meeting, council members approved adopting Ordinance #23-765, which amends the 2022/2023 Operating Budget of Revenues and Expenditures for an additional $40,700 for safety barricades along South Bernard Road.

The request for the eleven hundred linear feet of safety barricades came about after a crash that involved a single vehicle that struck the back of a home on January 12, 2023. The back of the home is along South Bernard Road between Albertson’s Parkway and Main Street. Officers with the Broussard City Police who responded to the crash reported there were no injuries due to the crash.

Rob Bunch, the owner of the home that was struck by the vehicle on January 12, 2023, spoke to the city council, and Ashely Landry spoke before the council, asking for the monies for the barricades to be approved. Bunch and Landry lived on the same street.


The house located at 508 Avenue C was approved for condemnation. Noel Jones and her fiance Dan Bourque plan on purchasing the property on May 30, 2023, and asked for an extension to demolish the house. They were given until July 15, 2023 to demolish the house on the property. Normally an owner has thirty days for demolishment.
