|Jury seeks resolution of sewerage problem|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury agreed to request the Department of Environmental Quality to assist in resolving a sewerage problem on Leroy Williams Drive.
That action came Monday night during the Jury's regular meeting.
However, Concordia Sewerage District No. 1 plans to address the problem shortly, said Keith Capdepon with the parish's engineering firm, Bryant Hammett & Associates.
Juror Willie Dunbar said that following heavy rains the sewer system on Leroy Williams Road overflows, sewage runs into the ditches and creates a stench in the area.
Capdepon said the sewerage district agreed to address the problem after the Phase 2 sewer project was completed if money was left over.
"The project has been completed and there is left over money," said Capdepon. "We intend to begin developing plans in the very near future."
In other business, the Jury:
• Denied a request to repair damage to the West Side Baptist Church parking lot since jurors felt the Jury was not responsible for the damage.
• Agreed to set up a meeting with George Ashley of the Old River Committee and a Corps of Engineers' representative concerning a feasibility study involving the placement of a weir on Old River.
• Accepted a settlement of $177,985 from National Interstate Insurance Company for a gradall totaled in a traffic accident.
• Reappointed Neeva Sibley to Recreation District No. 2 Board of Directors.
• Approved a request from Riverland Medical Center to seek a line of credit up to $500,000 from the State Bond Commission. Administrator Vernon Stevens said the hospital does this routinely each year.
• Appointed Hugh "Butch" Bateman to the RC&D Board and to pay the Jury's annual RC&D. dues of $300.
• Named Kathy Nunnery to the Kisatchie-Delta Board of Directors.
• Approved an occupational license for Freddie's Lawn-Tree-Pressure Wash Service, 434 Crestview Drive, Ferriday.
• Transferred $5,000 from the General Fund to the Criminal Court Fund.
• Agreed to pay $375 for an ad in the parish government magazine.
• Approved travel expenses for $931.75 for the Registrar of Voters and her deputy.
• Authorized the Jury's secretary to re-number all 2007 ordinances.
