Iberville Parish Begins Annual Utility Subsidies

The parish government of Iberville began its annual aid program last week, but parish president J. Mitchell Ourso told the parish council that the grants may not go as far as they have in years past.

The program kicked off last week for residents of Bayou Pigeon and Bayou Sorrell and was set to take place in northern Iberville this week.

The parish has more than $100,000 in money to help residents with their utility bills, Ourso said.
