St. Charles Parish President Larry Cochran announced today (Sept. 8) the parish will introduce a new ordinance seeking council approval to cancel the Gator Cover Marina II lease.
In a statement released today, Cochran said the decision was made because other possible land options were recently presented.
“I feel it is in the best interest of St. Charles Parish to commission a committee comprised of sportsmen who are residents of the parish to identify a piece of property that can be used for a west bank boat launch,” he said. “The committee will work in conjunction with an engineer to assess each location’s viability.”
Cochran further states a recommendation will be made from the committee to the administration who will then evaluate it and bring it before the council. He also invited anyone interested in being selected for the committee can contact their councilman.
