Voters in EBR Parish say Yes to change a 70 year old government plan

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Voters in East Baton Rouge Parish voted for a change to the plan of government that hasn't been changed in almost 70 years. 

The move for efficiency means the current department with just one director will become six. Each department managed by a different director. The departments will include maintenance, environmental services, traffic management, fleet management, development and building assets management. 

Each department will have their own budgets and their own directors responsible for implementing the budgets, and for getting the work done.

The decision passed with 58 percent voting yes.
