A motion on a resolution to schedule a public hearing at the 2/11/2013 meeting of the Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ) for receiving public comment on a pay raise for jurors, failed at tonight’s meeting on a tie vote.
On the roll call vote, voting yes were: Langston, Monroe, and Josh Peterson (Ward Three).
Abstaining was Billy Bryant (Ward Four).
None of the jurors commented on the issue, instead going to the roll call vote right after the motion was made. No one from the public commented during that part of the meeting.
Failure of the motion effectively kills the pay raise issue, unless and until it is brought up again.
Earlier in the meeting, Culpepper was unanimously elected President, and Monroe was elected Vice-President, also unanimously.
