Evangeline Parish Police Jury Meeting


    The Evangeline Parish Police Jury Monday  discussed the possibility of calling a millage tax to help fund a parish wide animal control program. Since the parish has no source of funding, the police jury has asked  secretary treasurer Doug DeVille to prepare a cost estimate on how much it would cost to fund an animal control program throughout the unincorporated areas of Evangeline Parish. Once the costs are determined, the parish can decide on much property tax would be needed.  The issue is expected to be placed on the fall ballot for voters to decide on the issue.

    In other news, the jury did not take up the issue of approving a cooperative endeavor agreement for the parish to provide gravel and grass shredding services for the new Ville Platte Recreational Park. The issue was on the agenda and the new recreational park director was due to speak when juror Eric Soileau  objected to discuss the issue. Soileau said the original agenda mailed to him did not contain the recreational park item. Soileau asked the agenda item to be tabled until next month because there were residents from his district that wanted to speak on the issue.

    In other action the police jury:

--received an annual report from Evangeline Parish County Agent Keith Fontenot and members of his  staff;

--approved combining all three Basile voting precincts for future elections: American Legion, St Augustine Hall into the Dr. Bobby Deshotel Community Center;

--approved a liquor license for Kay Crosby to sell liquor at the Y Drive Through Store;

--voted to advertise to accept the lease to reopen the courthouse snack shop;

--agreed to apply for grant funds from the Louisiana Community Development Block Grant program;

--received news that the parish has received $32,942 in sales taxes collected in April.
