I checked around and yes, the city is going to sue to stop the incorporation. At first I was flabbergasted because this only turns people against the city-parish, but after given some of the reasons why I sort of understand. Apparently, the St. George politicians have been collecting money to ru...

They don't have the signatures needed for Dec 4th. The powers behind the push to incorporate wouldn't want it on the December ballot. Reason: Too many St. Georgeans showing up for the run-off election could be bad news for Jindal's boy, Garrett Graves. St. George is Dan Claitor country. ...
