The closed session was called to discuss personnel issues regarding a department head. However, no action was taken in the session, nor was any taken afterwards.
Several issues were taken care of that had been deferred at the last meeting.
An resolution was adopted to abandon an alleyway, an appraisal is pending on land that the Greater North Louisiana Community Development Corporation wants to sell back to the town, and Fiscal Administrator Ken Folden presented an amended 2013-2014 and projected 2014-2015 budget.
Folden also presented the council an engagement agreement with J. Walker & Company for the town’s annual audit.
District B’s Renee Stringer had questions of Town Attorney Doug Stokes regarding a couple of pending criminal cases with the town.
Stokes said that since he’s the town’s attorney, he is recused from the cases and cannot report on them. Stokes said the cases had been assigned to another prosecutor in the District Attorney’s Office. Stokes also serves as an assistant DA.
Stringer also asked Police Chief Wesley Horton about a town backhoe that had been reported stolen. Horton said he was not aware of the case.
Finally, the town’s redistricting is proceeding as planned, Folden reported.
