Six to be Interviewed for LPPJ Treasurer

Six people will be interviewed over the next few days for the position of Lincoln Parish Police Jury (LPPJ) Treasurer, it was decided at yesterday’s meeting of the body. Nineteen had originally applied.

Parish Administrator Courtney Hall said that the interviews probably couldn’t be completed in time for next week’s regular meeting, and that another special called meeting would be needed to make a final decision.

“There’s probably going to wind up being another special meeting,” Hall said.

There was a bit of discussion about whether the interview meetings would be open meetings, to which Assistant District Attorney Bruce Hampton cautioned that if there was a quorum of jurors at the interview, then that would constitute a formal jury meeting and would have to be open.

He added that an executive session would be legal if the certain issues were to be discussed.

LA RS 42:17 A(1) allows executive sessions if a person’s “character, professional competence, or physical or mental health of a person” is discussed.

    I might be interested in this. Does anyone know how much we will be allowed to skim off the top?

    Anonymous you might check around. Looks odd that law enforcement paid over $200,000 above appraised value for a lot and building. According to assessors figures this is exactly what happened.
