GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux faces yet another decision on the city's overdue budget.

For the third time, the City Council has passed the same spending plan, but it includes sharp cuts to the police department and Ascension Economic Development Corporation.

Those cuts have twice prompted Mayor Arceneaux to veto the budgets.

The mayor tells 9News he plans to take his time and review the entire budget and do what he says is the best for the city.
