Some Jackson Parish Police Jurors (JPPJ) apparently want a pay raise from their current pay of $1,200/month ($1,350/month for the president). See page 63 of the 2011 audit for who got paid what amount.
At the Monday, 1/14/13 meeting of the jury, there is this item on the agenda.
21. Resolution calling Public Hearing for Monday, February 11, 2013, at 5:00PM in the Dr. Charles H. Garrett Community Center to receive public comments on whether the compensation paid to the Parish Police Jurors should be increased.
Monday’s vote on the resolution is likely to be a “test vote” to see whether there are enough votes to pass the raise. If the resolution for a public hearing is approved, the raise will likely pass at next month’s meeting. If the resolution fails, then the proponents will know who are the “weakest links” and need to “get their minds right” for the next time the issue comes up.
Monday’s meeting is at 5:30 PM in the Dr. Charles H. Garrett Community Center, 182 Industrial Drive, Jonesboro.
