More Water and Sewer Talks for City Officials

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT , La -

City officials met with attorney's behind closed doors again Friday to discuss the future of Shreveport water rates. Mayor Glover, city council members and city attorney's all gathered to discuss options on how to tackle the city's sewer infrastructure woes. Officials then came out of their executive session to have their administrative meeting ahead of Tuesday's City Council meeting. Chairman Michael Corbin says the Executive Sessions are a necessary tool for the city. "We had some new information to discuss about our ongoing negotiations with the Department of Justice and that's why we went into executive session today." Also discussed in Friday's executive session were lawsuits against the city that settled.
