'Save Satsuma' withdraws petition for incorporation

SATSUMA, LA (WAFB) - The group "Save Satsuma," which hoped to incorporate Satsuma as a town, has withdrawn its petition.

"Due to misinformation spread by the opposition, misstatements made by parish officials, and the resulting lack of support by the community, the committee to Save Satsuma has withdrawn the petition to incorporate Satsuma as a town," an email from the group read.

The group started the campaign about a year ago with the goal of having a voice in parish decision making on issues like zoning.

It needed 256 signatures to have the issue put on the November ballot.
