Walker, La (NBc33) — Walker is one step closer to officially becoming Louisiana's next city.
Walker needed 5,000 residents to qualify. According to the 2010 Census, just over 6,000 people call Walker home.
The town’s mayor, Bobby Font, says a proclamation from Governor Jindal says there are enough people that call Walker home.
Now the City Council will meet to make it official. The final vote is set for September 12.
