The Broussard City Council unanimously agreed last week for the city to enter into an agreement with Acadian for emergency and non-emergency services in the hopes of improving emergency response times for residents.

Signs went up this week on St. De Porres Street in Broussard in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.
