LPPJ Seeks Loan for New Construction @ “Angola North”

One other item of interest to come from last Tuesday night’s Lincoln Parish Police Jury (LPPJ) meeting was that the jury will be applying for a Rural Development loan for new construction at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center (Angola North).

The $2 1/2 million dollar expansion would add just under 100 beds at the facility. Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone has been actively lobbying the jury to fund the construction, claiming that funding from the Department of Corrections for housing state prisoners would more than pay for the construction.

Jury Treasurer Laura Hartt said Argent Financial had been engaged to provide advice on the application to Rural Development. She said the proposed loan could go before the State Bond Commission at their August meeting.

All borrowing by any Louisiana public entity must first get approval from the commission.
