|Police Jury hires lawyer over hardsurfacing issue|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury agreed to hire attorney Mike Sanders of Monroe to litigate its dispute with the Blain Company over Phase 1 hardsurfacing.
Sanders was hired during a special meeting Thursday night. He works with the firm Davenport, Files & Kelly of Monroe.
His employment is pending approval from the Louisiana Attorney General.
Jury President Melvin Ferrington said Kelly will soon begin going through contracts, core samples and other documents relating to the Jury's 2006 contract with Blain.
Jurors have met with the District Attorney's office on a number of occasions during the past months to discuss the dispute.
The Jury's Phase 1 hardsurfacing program was financed through a parishwide sales tax approved by parish voters. Blain was the low bidder for that work.
Ferrington said many Phase 1 roads do not meet specifications as outlined by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.
He said the Jury's contract called "for a 12-inch soil cement base with lime and in some cases this standard is not there."
