The Lafayette Consolidated Council will vote Tuesday evening on an ordinance that would shift control of roughly $452,000 in direct funding for non-governmental organizations such as 232-HELP, Big Brothers-Big Sisters, the Acadiana Arts Council and Festival International de Louisiane to the Community Foundation of Acadiana and phase out that funding over a three-year period.

The ordinance, subject of last week’s cover story, “The NGOs,” has generated passionate debate at theind.com. Our tally of council members suggests the ordinance will fail by a 6-3 vote.
