Abbeville Mayor Mark Piazza approached the Vermilion Parish Police Jury to ask them to create a sign ordinance for five unincorporated ‘islands” in the city limits.
Abbeville Mayor Mark Piazza and two council members, Brady Broussard Jr. and Roslyn White, attended Monday night’s police jury meeting to ask if the police jury could create a special sign ordinance. The new ordinance would not allow electronic billboards on the four other unincorporated pieces of land in Abbeville.
