LIVINGSTON, Louisiana — Officials say potential changes to Livingston Parish's Home Rule Charter won't make the November ballot.

Council Chairman Ricky Goff tells The Advocate ( having propositions ready for the December ballot is more realistic. Parish council held its second special meeting in two weeks Wednesday to discuss the Charter Review Commission's recommendations.

Goff says the council must approve the propositions and their wording by ordinance, a process that requires more public notice than the calendar will allow before the Secretary of State's July 23 deadline for the November ballot.

Instead, the council will hold another special meeting July 2 to vote on the top five propositions council members want to see on the December ballot.
