The following is a news release from The City of Sulphur.
Mayor Ron LeLeux was contacted this morning by Colonel Mike Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police informing him that the department has decided to keep the Office of Motor Vehicles in Sulphur open.
In his statement to Mayor LeLeux, Colonel Edmonson commented, "The current State budget crisis required the review of the department's operation.
