Council threatens Cormier with contempt charge

By Jason Browne

An ordinance before the Plaquemines Parish Council at its Sept. 6 meeting could pave the way for contempt charges against Parish President Amos Cormier III.

District 2 council member Beau Black introduced the ordinance authorizing Council Attorney Dannie Garrett “take such actions that are necessary” to compel Cormier to adhere to a mandamus ordering him to move his administration from the Popich Building on Highway 23 in Belle Chasse to Building 100 at the Plaquemines Government Complex on Hebert Boulevard.
