|Parish awarded $1 million Homeland Security grant|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury will receive at least $1 million in Homeland Security funds which can be used to improve parish and city buildings and facilities to make them more secure in dangerous weather.
"We've had a number of meetings and we and other parishes are guaranteed $1 million," Police Jury President Melvin Ferrington said today (Wednesday.)
Ferrington said he hopes the Jury can replace the courthouse roof, which he estimates will cost $450,000.
"That's my intention to make this the Jury's top priority," said Ferrington.
Towns will also be allowed to apply for part of the $1 million grant funding. Additionally, said Ferrington, the Jury will be able to apply for some of the $74 million that will be awarded on a competitive basis.
In addition to the courthouse roof, Ferrington said he'd like to see a flood gate on Wild Cow Bayou repaired and a flood gate put on Lake Concordia.
"We've talked to our engineer and we feel like the flood structures will pass FEMA guidelines," said Ferrington. "We're also hopeful that the courthouse roof project will be approved."
The parish Homeland Security office is presently working on the projects to be included in the $1 million grant project.
