Ouachita Garbage Ordinances Introduced @ OPPJ

12/16/2014

Two new ordinances pertaining to solid waste and garbage were introduced at last night’s meeting of the Ouachita Parish Police Jury (OPPJ).

Ordinance 9060 will require:

Persons owning or operating places of business within Garbage District No. 1 of the Parish of Ouachita shall keep the business premises, including sidewalks, service alleys, parking areas, and areas adjacent to receptacles free from garbage, litter, and trash, and shall further prevent garbage, litter and trash originating in their places of business, or upon the premises thereof, from being carried by the wind, rain, or other elements onto any road or other public place or private property of another.

A $500 penalty is included in the proposed law.

Ordinance 9061 will require:

The owner of every occupied residential rental unit in Garbage District No. 1 of Ouachita Parish shall maintain a contractual arrangement that provides for the collection, conveyance, and disposal of solid waste from such residential rental unit by a franchise agent on a regular basis of not less than two (2) times per month. The
obligation of the owner may be satisfied by a contractual arrangement maintained by the occupant of such residential rental unit.

The fine for violations of this law is $100.

Ouachita Parish Garbage District No. 1 is comprised of all unincorporated areas of Police Jury Districts D and F, or all of juror Ollibeth Reddix’s district, and all of Pat Moore’s district, that is outside the city limits of Monroe and Richwood.

The two ordinances will be up for final adoption at the 1/5/15 jury meeting.

In other business, the jury approved a 2 1/2% cost of living raise for jury employees.
