|Police Jury issues new courthouse keys|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury has issued new keys for all offices at the new courthouse in an effort to improve security at the facility.
Jurors discussed the matter at their regular meeting Monday night.
"We changed all outside door locks and some on the inside," said Jury President Melvin Ferrington. "We haven't changed locks and keys here for the 18 years I've been on the Jury."
He said a month ago a phone call was made from the Jury meeting room after midnight.
"A lady called the office the next morning and wanted to know who was calling her," said Ferrington. He said the meeting room door "was jimmied and somebody came in and made the call."
Ferrington said dead bolts have been placed on some doors.
The Jury provided the department head of each courthouse office one new key. Because of that policy, the Jury, without taking action, declined a request Monday night from the Registrar of Voters for two additional keys for employees.
Juror Randy Temple said courthouse employees who need to get into the facility after hours can do so by signing in at the dispatcher's office at the sheriff's office and receive the extra key there, which must be turned back in on departure.
In other business, the Jury:
-- Adopted a resolution to award the contract for Phase III hardsurfacing work to Soil Stabilizers.
-- Voted to pay Don Tolar $385 for services rendered involving litigation in the Phase I hardsurfacing project.
-- Approved an occupational license for Michael R. Wheeler, Wheelers Port-A-Potties & Vacuum Services, 367 Grove Circle, Vidalia.
-- Approved the transfer of $45,000 from the Sales Tax Fund to the Solid Waste Fund.
-- Voted to hold a public hearing on October 12 at 11 a.m. on grant funding through the Louisiana Recovery Authority.
