A new road construction law will take effect in Livingston Parish without a vote from residents.

The parish council voted 5 to 4 Tuesday night to pass the ordinance that changes the way roads are paved.

Under the law, there must be at least five homes on a road before public money can be used to pave it.

Some residents say the new requirements should have already seen on the books.
