HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish is going to look at ways to use parish-owned property to generate money for the parish’s general fund.

Councilman John Navy said at Wednesday night’s Parish Council meeting that the parish can use the properties it owns to find ways to get more money. With the downturn in oilfield and hiring freezes in the parish government, The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/2209lGL) the parish could turn the property into money to supplement the parish budget.

The parish pays the upkeep on all the property.

Parish Purchasing Manager Angela Guidry said they are compiling a list of properties that can be offloaded.
