Larry Walter appeared before the Jurors and stated that he would like to be the Certified Building Official for Franklin Parish. He passed out a copy of his Resume to the Jurors. Larry said that he could perform all building code permitting, plan reviews, inspections, and seek and write grant application for the Parish. Debbie Noble spoke to the Jurors on Larry behalf. She said that Larry helped her tremendously while employed by McManus and that the Parish should hire him as our CBO. Juror Young said in all due respect to what Mr. Walters has presented, we had Mr. Blount to come before the Jury and present a plan and then we turned him down. Mr. Blount's company is in this type business and have been for 30 years. They'll come in and set up shop as professionals. Juror Young said that since IBTS agreed to come back and help us we need to ask them to do the job. Juror Young also said that he thought it was unusual to switch the agenda. Under any visitors, usually a constituent come before the Jury to talk about a problem that he/she might have. This item was not on the agenda that someone was coming in to make a presentation about Building Inspector. Juror Young said that this is highly out of order. President Guimbellot said that Juror Hendry asked him to do this so Larry could make his presentation.
Greg Blount with IBTS spoke to the Jurors. Blount said that he is working with several parishes to develop a regional approach. We are talking to Mr. Walters about hiring him. Need two (2) more parishes. We already have Caldwell. When we get one more Parish we can hire a full time CBO to provide services. The Parish interest is at the heart of IBTS. IBTS secured a $52,000 grant for the Parish. Blount said IBTS has over one hundred million dollars in grant capabilities throughtout the United States. IBTS did a cost analysis study for Franklin Parish at no charge to see if a flat fee or square footage fee structure would be more economical for the citizens. A .55 cent per square foot proposal is cheaper. Juror Parks wanted to know if the .55 cents per square foot was heated or under roof. Blount said under roof. Blount said that IBTS has extended services to the citizens of Franklin Parish without a contract to the Parish but contracted directly to the homeowner. Juror Johnson asked Blount what about a grant for next year? Blount said he thought that this might be the last year for grants for Building Code Departments. Juror Johnson also wanted to know if the Jury would have to come up any money. Blount said IBTS's commitment to the state of Louisiana cost will be zero (0) to the Parishes. Blount said that IBTS will implement a fully run building department at no cost to the Jury. President Guimbellot wanted to know if IBTS would hire Larry Walters. Blount said they are in discussion with him now. They need a local person to run the office. Juror Parks wanted to know if the Jury hired you, would Larry Walters be inspector for Franklin Parish? Blount said he would be inspector and CBO. Larry made the statement to the Jurors that he is not trying to compete with IBTS. He said he had an opportunity to talk to all the Jurors and that was what he did. Larry also said that he is looking for a job and ready to go to work. Juror Young said that we have a proposal from a group who will come in and take care of inspections and run the office at no cost to the Jury. We don't know what it will cost if we hire an individual. If we hire Mr. Blount's group, it is not going to cost us anything. Juror Scott said that Blount had good answers to everything. It's almost too good to be true. Larry Walters seems to be more flexible. He can help in other areas. What we need to do is vote for who is best for the job. Juror Young said that he had no problem with Mr. Waters at all. He is a very good man. If we hire IBTS, they will hire Mr. Walters. The Jury needs to make a business decision. We need to do what is best for the Parish. Juror Young also said, we have an opportunity to get into a deal that's going to be a workable deal that's not going to cost us anything. We owe it to the citizens of Franklin Parish to go with this group (IBTS). Juror Johnson said he agreed with Juror Young one hundred percent. Juror Johnson asked Blount how would their grant writing services benefit the Parish ? Blount said services would be available to the Jury at one hundred percent. Juror Johnson said it looks like a win, win, win situation for everybody. If IBTS is going to hire Larry Walters and if it‚s going to save tax payers money, looks like a better deal for Mr. Walters and Franklin Parish. President Guimbellot wanted to know if IBTS could speed things up on hiring Larry Walters. Blount said he was giving him a contract to let the Parish Attorney look at and if the Attorney is satisfied with the contract and the Jury signs it, they will hire Larry Walters. Juror Hendry said that Mobile Homes were exempt from inspections and Senator Ellington told the Jury this also. Juror Hendry also wanted to know how much IBTS would charge to inspect wiring and plumbing on Mobile Homes. Blount said $200.00.
Motion by Young, and seconded by Johnson to appoint IBTS as our Certified Building Official. By a show of hands all Jurors voted yes, except Scott who voted no.
Velma Thomas appeared before the Jury. She said that the Jury had done some work behind her house on New Zion Road. She needs some dirt there because the filling in they did has settled and needs to filled in again. Greg said that the work has been scheduled to be done. They just have not gotten around to doing it yet. Greg and Ricky will go to Mrs. Thomas and check things out.
Juror Scott discussed some property located on Sunflower Lane. This particular property floods. A permit has been issued and the property is not in a flood zone area. Juror Scott said he didn't want the Jury to be held liable. Greg Blount said that IBTS could look for grants that could help homeowners get updates and get an updated FEMA map.
Ken McManus spoke to Jurors about Turkey Creek Park. Ken said that we need to get the Park up and going. He said that Shannon needs invoice from the Coop to see how much it is going to cost. Ken said he would call the Coop and ask for an invoice. Shannon said she needed an exact amount.
Motion by Johnson, and seconded by Young to approve an amount not to exceed $10,000. Unanimously approved.
Ken then discussed some on going projects. He asked the Jury for their suggestions on what to apply for through Capital Outlay. Ken discussed the projects that were asked for last year and for any suggestions or changes for this year. Already applied for projects through Captial Outlay are: Courthouse renovations, Union Church Road, Turkey Creek Park, Public Works Building, Johnson Road, Raspberry Bridge, and LASTEP (Drinking water Baskin/Crowville area), and Baker's Cutoff. Jurors Johnson and Scott asked Ken to see if he could apply for funding for Abe Lincoln Subdivision, Jan Road, Ann Road, and area behind Brown's Landing. Juror Johnson also asked Ken to see if he could get funds from Captial Outlay for the Washington Sewer System. Juror Young said that we have a priority list and when we ask for special money to do roads every road out there is special.
Ken talked about the Building Code Department. At the last meeting, we were still in the building business. He said on Friday he received a call from his bank and they told me that we were spending more money than we were taking in. Tuesday, Larry went to a Code Council meeting and they came up with $500,000 worth of insurance that I would have to get. That made the decision for me to get out of the building business. I was losing money in the building business. Had a lot of contracts with FEMA. Small firms can't last long when you deal with FEMA. It is hard to get your money. So I am back in the Engineering business.
Charles Brass appeared before the Jurors. He passed out to Jurors some statistics on Section 8 program that he received from HUD. Brass talked about getting extra units for the program. Shannon suggested that the Jury do a resolution to HUD asking for 100 additional units.
Motion by Campbell, and seconded by Scott to do resolution to HUD asking for additional units. Unanimously approved.
Motion by Johnson, and seconded by Young to send letters to property owner's at the end of Old Columbia Road and Ellington Road. Unanimously approved.
Juror Johnson talked about developing the north end of Turkey Creek Park. He said maybe this should be placed on a ballot to see if citizen want the lake developed. Talk to David Doughty about this.
Motion by Hendry, and seconded by Parks to put Hesler Road into system. Unanimously approved..
Motion by Campbell, and seconded by Scott to do a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement with Hannah-Richardson Post 3155 ˆVFW Hall. The Hall parking lot is in need of repair. The Building can be used by the Jury as an emergency facility etc. The Jury will furnish the equipment and labor and Post 3155 will furnish materials at a cost of $800.00. Unanimously approved.
Motion by Hendry, and seconded by Campbell that the Jury would not make a recommendation on appointing someone to replace William Till. Unanimously approved.
Under Personnel Committee Report: Motion by Campbell and seconded by Young to hire Carroll White as Bush Hog Operator at $8.00 per hour. Unanimously approved.
Motion by Parks, and seconded by Campbell to reinstate Arthur Fletcher as Chip Seal Operator at $8.00 per hour. Unanimously approved.

In 2006 projects included were: Dummyline Road rumble strips, signs for chip seal roads, and measuring devices. DOTD will bid these out, we'll put them up and come back and inspect them. Received $160,000.00 for signs and $1,000.00 for rumble strips. We need to apply for 2007 application before October 1, 2007. Greg said that he would like to have input from all Jurors.
Under Old Business: President Guimbellot said he is not satisfied with weed spraying done in the North end of the Parish. Several Jurors voiced concerns about this also.
