-Sheriff, Mayor-President Discuss Law Enforcement Tax Proposal- On September 12, 2018 Sheriff Mark Garber met with Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux to discuss the Sheriff’s law enforcement district tax proposal on the upcoming December 8, 2018 ballot. If the measure is passed, Sheriff Garber is prepared to share revenue from the tax with various law enforcement agencies throughout the parish, including the municipalities. “It is in the best interest of the people of Lafayette Parish that all of our law enforcement agencies are as strong as we can make them,” said Sheriff Garber. Sheriff Garber agrees with Mayor-President Robideaux that additional manpower or officer pay assistance are each viable options to provide support to the Lafayette Police Department, a branch of the Lafayette Consolidated Government. “At this point in the conversation I am leaving it up to Mayor-President Robideaux and the council to let me know whether they would like to dedicate the proposed funding to additional manpower, or to supplemental officer pay” said Sheriff Garber, “The choice is theirs to make." During the meeting, Sheriff Garber provided Mayor-President Robideaux with a written legal opinion given by bond attorney Jerry Osborne on August 20, 2018 which states the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office is legally authorized to share portions of the proposed tax with municipal law enforcement agencies within the Lafayette Parish Law Enforcement District.
