Mystery of the potato chip truck parked at taxpayer expense
And if it is legal, does that mean businesses and individuals parish-wide have the same right to park their cars and trucks on public property at taxpayer expense?
A lot of people with home-based business would like to do just that because their trucks are clogging neighborhood streets.
Carolyn Louviere, secretary for Parish President Albert Laque’s office, says she doesn’t know if it’s okay or for private parties to use the lot for personal use or not.
Tim Vial, the parish’s chief administrative officer, might have the answer. But he didn’t return telephone calls in the two days leading up to our press deadline.
Sheriff’s Capt. Pat Yoes says the truck could be towed if parish officials request it.
