OPPJ Last Night

Perhaps the most newsworthy occurrence at last night’s meeting of the Ouachita Parish Police Jury (OPPJ) was who attended.

Present was City of Monroe Interim Engineer Kim Golden. Golden is a former police juror from District E. Presumably, she was there to answer questions about the city’s acquisition of right-of-way from the parish. That property is to be used to enhance the Ticheli Road entrance of the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo.

We cannot recall ever seeing the Monroe City Engineer at an OPPJ meeting in the five years we’ve covered the body.

Also at the meeting was another Jamie Mayo acolyte, Monroe Chamber of Government President Sue Nicholson.

Perhaps Mayo plans to involve himself in next year’s police jury races, and has his scouts out keeping tabs on things.

The jury had a relatively short meeting, approving a request from the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office (OPSO) Tax Division for an appropriation to buy new computers. About 40% of the $10 thousand required will come from the police jury, with the balance coming from other taxing entities in the parish.

Also, District D’s Ollibeth Reddix asked the public works department to see if anything could be done to help drainage at the J. S. Clark Cemetery.
