Someone stole $533 worth of electricity from Cattle Festival in Abbeville

The Louisiana Cattle Festival Association received an electricity bill from the City of Abbeville it did not expect.
The bill totaled $533.
The month before, that same bill was under $2.
Francis Plaisance, who is the president the Cattle Festival, did a little investigation of how the bill came about.
Plasiance said the bill was from a electrical panel box located on a pole at the Red Barn on Rodeo Road in Abbeville. The electrical panels are used only during the trail rides when campers hook up to them.

Abbeville Council approves sidewalk improvements

Taking a stroll around downtown Abbeville will soon become more pleasurable, and it’s no just because of more favorable weather.
The Abbeville City Council voted 5-0 during its regular meeting Tuesday evening to move forward with a sidewalk remediation project. The city will fund $75,000 of the work. The council also voted to sign an intergovernmental agreement with the Vermilion Parish Police Jury after Police Juror Wayne Touchet pledged to put $10,000 toward the project.
