The State of Louisiana filed a suit last month to appoint a fiscal administrator for Richwood.

In its suit, the Attorney General's office contends if a fiscal administrator is not appointed, Richwood citizens would be quote - "deprived of essential services all to the detriment of their health, safety and welfare."

The state wants independent auditor Jondal Walker from Lake Charles named to the position.

According to state officials the Town of Richwood was late or unable to make payroll in July, August and September.
 
The hearing is set for 2:00p.m. Friday at the Ouachita Parish Courthouse.
