Without comment, Alexandria City Council members Tuesday, March 9,  ended a long-standing lawsuit against Cleco Corporation.

An ordinance concerning the matter of the city versus Cleco reaffirming authority for settlement of litigation was passed in a 6-1 vote at the March 9 regular City Council session. Councilman Ed Larvadain III voted no.

Two related ordinances were also approved, one aimed at resolving third party claims and the other authorizing city officials to prepared a report on establishing a protocol and protective fund concerning funds related to resolution of the case.

City Council President Roosevelt Johnson then announced a public hearing would be held following the next Council session on March 23 at City Hall to hear public comment regarding disposition of any rebates from the settlement.
