The banners hanging on Concord Street.

Abbeville to review sign ordinance regarding banners

Onezieme Mouton owns one of the historic buildings on Concord Street in downtown Abbeville.
Mouton currently has three tenants occupying the building, the most he has had in the several years that he has owned the property. A fourth business is looking to possibly call the location home.
What’s creating buzz for the building? Mouton credits new banners placed on the building to promote the businesses. However, Mouton eventually learned the banners violated the city’s sign ordinance.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Reports have indicated that the Food and Drug Administration is considering distributing half doses of the Moderna vaccine to younger patients in the hopes of inoculating more Americans.
Top officials in the FDA warn, however, that doing so could come with risks.
So far, just over 4 million Americans have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, which puts the U.S. far behind the 20 million dose schedule set for the end of 2030 by Operation Warp Speed.

Abbeville officials discuss islands after Jury tables issue

After not finding a definitive answer from the Vermilion Parish Police Jury on Monday, Abbeville officials said on Tuesday they will continue to work to find a solution to an issue with an handful of “islands” that are within the city limits.
The islands are unincorporated areas completely surrounded by the city limits. An advertising company recently placed an
electronic billboard on one of those islands. That drew concern from some city officials, as the city does have an ordinance that prohibits such billboards.
