Evangeline Police Jury Votes to Apply for Bonds to Continue Road and Drainage Work


      The Evangeline Parish Police Jury Monday adopted a resolution to begin the process of applying with the state bond commission to issue up to 28 million dollars for road and drainage work in the parish . Bonding Attorney Eric Lafleur explained that the bonds will be repaid from the two cent sales tax that voters renewed last year for another ten year period. Bonding underwriter John Mayeaux reported that the sales tax will generate approximately $3.7 million dollars. He predicted that the interest rate will be about 4.25 percent. Lafleur expected that the bonds will be issued sometime in October.

     Rebecca Shirley, executive director of the Acadiana Economic Development District and Katy Chaisson, senior business development director with Cleco.   explained their services to members of the police jury.
