Acadia Parish Jury considers ordinances, personnel and finances


The first Tuesday of February means its committee meeting time for Acadia Parish. Some highlights include accepting a low-bid for waterline extension project to the Coon Richard Subdivision and rejecting extending the parish tourist center hours to the weekend.

Currently, the center opens Monday through Friday 8am to 4pm, but jurors AJ and Dale Broussard argued that tourists mainly come on the weekend. The director of the tourist center says opening the doors on Saturday would be a waste of time, as most people traveling turn to the parish tourism website for ideas and history. The website has 300 to 400 hits a day but in January only 62 people actually stopped at the center.

The legislative committee also discussed a pipeline ordinance, suggesting that there should be a law in place to restrict anyone laying pipelines across private properties to certain a right away. Juror AJ Creduer argued that their ordinance could impede upon state law and that the issue should be looked into further.

Revisions to the parish personnel manual move to legal consideration with the issue of pay raises for parish employees move to full jury consideration during the regular meeting of February 11th.
