ST. FRANCISVILLE, Louisiana — The West Feliciana Parish Council has agreed to meet Sept. 15 to consider an ordinance addressing a possible settlement of the long-simmering dispute over the land bordering the former St. Francisville ferry landing.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1mWwsfP ) a proposed ordinance would authorize Parish President Kevin Couhig to enter into a settlement with Lambert Gravel Company.

The protracted dispute centers on a piece of property along the old Louisiana Highway 10.

The parish had built a concrete slab at the end of the road, which was meant to serve as a public boat launch.

When the Lamberts used concrete barriers to bar public access to the property, the parish removed them. In 2012, Lambert Gravel Company filed suit against the parish, claiming the parish trespassed when it removed the concrete barriers.
