Demolition bid for Purchas/Acquisition program-was tabled due to a recommendation from the Parish Attorney until all bids could be reviewed. The Parish President will call a Special meeting after all bids have been reviewed.
Juror Scott discuss bike path- Juror Scott spoke with the City Counsel at their last meeting about the bike trail. (The following is a written statement by Juror Scott, not an actual quote.)
“What is the value of a bike path? What’s the value of commuting without polluting?
What’s the value of a good walk, a long run or a pleasant bike ride? What’s the value of clean air? What’s the value of a healthy life?
The new bike path will allow a much better place to live. It will allow generations of users safe passage to school, work, shopping and recreation. It will make our community healthier and cleaner by offering a safe, peaceful place to walk, run, and ride a bike and to commute without adding more greenhouse gases to our atmosphere. It will also serve our tourist industry by connecting hotels and motelos3 on both ends with attractions that many tourists otherwise be likely to take advantage of. It will make our community more fun!
Often, people underestimate how much bike paths are actually used and who uses them. One surprising thing is that a substantial number of the users are not bicyclists. People of all ages love to walk and run on them. They are safe and tranquil places to walk a dog or push a stroller. It’s not unusual to see a whole family out enjoying a bike path. What really warms my heart is to see senior citizens out walking the bike paths. That’s not a rare experience; they make up a large percentage of the users- must be that “older and wiser” thing.
Cover ditches… which will help eliminate mosquitoes and other pests.
Therefore, I am asking the jury to network with the City of Winnsboro in order to provide a project such as this for our citizens. A project of this caliber will add to our infrastructure.
Some of the money that makes the new path possible comes from a state grant for the Safe Routes to School Program.
The Franklin Sun listed Franklin Parish at the top in the state for poor health. As government of the parish, let us take action for our citizens for better health and other improvement.”
Juror Scott discusses donating booths for Ephron Rollins Park- Juror Scott discussed with the Jury that a person donated $1500.00 of booths. Juror Scott would like to add the booth’s to the park inventory.
Superintendent’s Report-Superintendent’s Humphries discusses the work schedule with the jury. The superintendent informed the jury of the offer made by Cardinal Pipeline to donate money to the reconstructing of Elam Woods Road. The Public Works committee discussed this past Tuesday the possibility of applying for a grant to assist with the remaining cost balance of reconstruction. The parish has obligated $989,2660.00 to the chip- sealing of this road during this season. Parish money coupled with the $130,000.00 offered by Cardinal Pipeline the parish has a better opportunity to receive Federal funding to apply soil cement to the base material in order to withstand the heaver vehicles traveling this road. This process will take a few months, therefore the jury is asked to move Elam Woods Road down o the work schedule to avoid any delays in work. The motion was made by Juror Hendry and seconded by Juror Scott to move Elam Woods Road to the bottom of this se3asons work schedule begin work on the road next in line, Lishman Road, until we have received word from our Federal grant application. . Unanimously approved
Motion was made by Juror Hendry and seconded by Juror Scott to approve work schedule for FEMA damaged roads. Unanimously approved
Public Works Committee Report-
Mark Whitney- Mr. Whitney was unable to attend, but the discussion of Wimberley Road carried on. The parish Engineer inspected the road and deemed the road in eligible at the time. The road does not meet parish specifications.
George Price- Mr. Price discussed the possibility of bringing a road into the parish system and asked for clarification of our Sub-division Ordinance. After much discussion the jury decided to research the matter more closely. We will be obtaining ordinances from other parishes and work with the parish engineer to determine if the ordinance needs to be revised. After the revision process has been completed the parish will send the ordinance to the parish attorney and the police jury attorney for review. Once the changes have been approved by the committee, the committee will request that the jury vote to hold an open meeting to amend the ordinance.
Fontenot Property- Mr. Fontenot would like to divide a 2.16 track of land into three sections. The committee agrees that this would be considered a subdivision of land and would have to comply with the subdivision ordinance.
Ricky Allen Road Bond- The parish must obtain a bond or a letter of credit from Mr. Allen’s bank. If neither is supplied Mr. Allen will be considered out of compliance with the sub-division requirements and all work should stop. A letter will be sent to Mr. Allen.
Elam Woods Road- the committee met with Mr. Robinson and representatives from North Delta Regional Planning and Development to discuss submitting an application for assistance with overlaying Elam Woods Road. Cardinal Pipeline along with the police jury will be applying money to the project. Elam Woods Road is scheduled to be chip-sealed this season. The application process will begin immediately.
Looney Canal- NRCS should be able to fund the repairs if the police jury can supply the man power and equipment. It is the recommendation of the committee to agree with these terms. Motion was made by Juror Robinson and seconded by Juror Hendry. Unanimously approved
Wayne Sanders- Mr. Wayne Sanders agrees to purchase culverts to replace the rusted culverts in a water shed ditch if the parish will install. It is the recommendation of the committee to install the culverts. Motion was made by Juror Harris and seconded by Juror Hendry. Unanimously approved
Parish Line Road Bridge- It is the recommendation of the committee to purchase flat cars to be used in place of a bridge on Parish Line Road until a concrete bridge can be constructed through the federal bridge program. At that time the flat cars will be used in another area of the parish. Flat cars will be purchased from bridge line item. Motion was made by Juror Hendry and seconded by Juror Robinson. Unanimously approved
Rainy Day Schedule- the parish Superintendant requested the committee to instruct him as to the hours an employee will work during a rain day.

It is the recommendation of the committee to advertise for a replacement of the position with extensive background checks and references being required. Motion was made by Juror Harris and seconded by Juror Hendry for approval for advertising. Unanimously approved
