|Jury okays upgrades for both courthouses|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury moved forward Monday night with plans to put a new roof on the old courthouse and to install a new air conditioning and heating system there, while 21 new phones will be purchased for the new courthouse.
These items were among the topics approved during the Jury's regular meeting Monday night.
Roofmasters of Monroe offered the lowest of two bids for the old courthouse roof at Vidalia at $64,360.29. The bid includes a 20-year warranty.
Dixie Roofing of Pineville bid $71,740 on the roof, but its quote included a new skylight.
The bids were referred to the Courthouse and Finance committees to make sure all specifications are met.
The Jury also announced that it had received a $90,000 economic development grant to purchase a new air conditioning and heating system for the old courthouse.
Meanwhile, jurors agreed to purchase 21 new phones for the new courthouse for the District Attorney, Judge and Police Jury offices.
"These phones are old, obsolete and worn out," said Ferrington.
The cost will be $70 per phone.
Jurors also agreed to install three new lines at a cost of $85 per line. One line will be for the District Attorney's office, one for the Indigent Defender office and one for the Jury's conference office downstairs which is used by Homeland Security.
The Jury also welcomed the return of juror Carey Cook, who had been unable to attend recent meetings due to an illness. Cook expressed his appreciation to jurors, citizens and his family for their prayers and well wishes over the past weeks.
In other business, the Jury:
-- Voted to advertise for land and water leases for Black Lake.
-- Voted to hold a public hearing in order to amend its building permit ordinance.
-- Asked juror Joe Parker and Supt. Jackie Pugh to obtain a total job quote from L-64 for clearing willows from the Clayton Canal.
-- Approved occupational licenses for T-Papa's Kajun Kitchen Seasoning, LLC, Monterey and Miss-Lou Pawn Shop. A Class A Beer and Class A Liquor License was approved for Amy Crane, The Landing Marina & Bar on Bodark Road.
-- Approved the transfer of $45,000 from the Sales Tax Fund to the Solid Waste Fund.
