Virtual attendence only – The May 5 St. Martin Parish Council meeting proceeded in the Carroll J. Fuselier Meeting Room, but the parish president, council members, the parish attorney and the single speaker attended only as images on the monitors. With more than ten attendees, COVID-19 restrictions made in-person appearance impossible, so the meeting was conducted through Zoom conferencing. (Karl Jeter)
Businesses in Acadiana are anxiously preparing for a phased return to normal operation after two difficult months of COVID-19 restrictions.
Parish President Chester Cedars commented on that process at the May 5 parish council meeting. The meeting was attended in person only by Assistant Clerk Brooke Galespie, members of the press and a sheriff’s deputy.
Cedars, all council members, attorney Allan Durand and the single speaker attended via Zoom video conference. The proceedings were displayed for the benefit of the press on the council chamber video system.
