ST. FRANCISVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

A court battle is going on over whether or not West Feliciana Parish can replace the windows at the courthouse in St. Francisville.

Why is this a big deal? Those opposed say replacing the windows may get the building bumped off the registry of historic places.

Parish President Kevin Couhig and other parish officials argued citizens don’t have the power to stop the construction. He says three quarters of the windows have already been replaced.

A judge agreed with Couhig and denied the injunction to halt the process. He added another judge had already denied a restraining order against the project.

Couhig says he hopes this hearing has resolved the matter for good.
