Police Jury to Meet Tuesday

The Lincoln Parish Police Jury will meet Tuesday, November 10, Lincoln Parish Library Events Center, 910 North Trenton. Committee meetings begin at 5:00 PM.

Here are the agendas.

Newly elected District Three juror Richard Durrett will be joining the jury quite soon, possibly as early as next week. Here’s what the law says:

RS 18:513 – Certification of candidates elected

B.  Certification of candidates elected for an unexpired term.  If a candidate is elected at a special primary or general election for an unexpired term or if he is elected at such an election by the people without opposition, the secretary of state shall promptly certify the name of the candidate elected to the appropriate official named in Paragraphs (1) through (6) of Subsection A of this Section.

We called the Louisiana Secretary of State’s office yesterday, and asked what was the definition of “promptly.” We were told that after a special election, they customarily issued the certification within 10 days of the election date, or no later than Friday, November 13.

    I hope Durrett can help with that mess.

    Health & Welfare Committee is going to discuss the parish health unit. One proposal is to move the health unit out of its old building into the library events center. Bad idea. Events center has brought activities to Ruston that cannot be hosted anywhere else. Gun shows, proms, conferences, etc. that are too large for any other facility. Contact your police juror.
