Trial Over City Of St. George Creation Ends

The trial over the creation of the city of St. George is over.

The judge presiding over the case told attorneys for both sides he'll make a decision in a couple weeks while noting it would eventually end up in the state Supreme Court.

St. George supporters say the city will help all of East Baton Rouge Parish.

Opponents, who include Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, say it will cause major service cuts through loss of tax revenue.

People living in the St. George area voted to incorporate in 2019.
