Monday’s OPPJ Meeting

Last night’s meeting of the Ouachita Parish Police Jury (OPPJ) lasted 27 minutes, perhaps a record in the five years we have been covering the body. We vividly recall meetings of three hours or more.

During the visitors part of the meeting, S. E. Huey’s Markly Huey addressed an ongoing project to produce flood maps for the Frenchman’s Bend subdivision. Huey said the proposed maps had been reviewed by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), and should be published soon.

On another flooding issue, the jury voted to retain Lazenby & Associates to develop cost estimates for projects in the Town & Country and Tanglewood subdivisions. The updated estimates would be used for grant applications.

Architect Tommy Hatten also appeared before the jury soliciting business on upcoming building projects.
