|Old courthouse projects continue|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury accepted the low bid of a Mississippi company for an air conditioning system for the old courthouse at Vidalia.
That action came during the Jury's regular meeting Monday night.
Terry Trane of Ridgeland, Miss., bid $84,585 for a 50-ton chiller and split system, the lowest of three submitted. Jurors will pay for the new system with grant money.
Other bidders included McInvale Mechanical, $87,120; and Aire Service Heating & Cooling, $86,783.30.
Meanwhile, work to find the source of a leak at the old courthouse continues.
Police Jury President Melvin Ferrington said this morning (Wednesday) that "the leak got bigger last night during that blowing rain and it's being checked out this morning. It's coming from the north wall and around the window seals."
He said the leak is affecting the library but there have been no signs of leaking on the second, third or fourth floors.
Jurors also agreed Monday to study storage needs for the Jury, District Attorney and Clerk of Court. Ferrington asked the Finance and Courthouse committees to discuss the matter.
Dist. Atty. Brad Burget and Clerk of Court Clyde Ray Webber said their offices are out of storage space.
The Jury, which also needs storage space, is considering building storage units behind the courthouse to remedy the problem.
In other action, the Jury:
-- Amended its building permit ordinance following a public hearing in which no comments were offered.
-- Agreed to put the Rev. Troy Thomas in touch with the Recreation District Board No. 3 concerning recreation for the youth in the Concordia Park area. Thomas and Catherine Cartwright said many of the youth are forced to play basketball in the streets because there is no where else for them to compete.
-- Approved payments to Bryant Hammett & Associates totaling $258.76 for Gene Clark Tummello etal. for a drainage right-of-way and $487.51 for parishwide acceptance of the Elouise Road. Juror Willie Dunbar objected to the payment on Elouise Road.
-- Voted to pay Davenport, Files & Kelly $19,997.14 for legal work involving the Jury lawsuit involving the Phase 1 hardsurfacing road program.
-- Approved the transfer of $45,000 from the Sales Tax Fund to the Solid Waste Fund.
