CLINTON — East Feliciana Parish police jurors said Monday that they will finish an overlay project in the Feliciana Crossing subdivision off La. 964 by pouring concrete on cul-de-sacs in the development.
Police juror Dwight Hill said the jury has used a concrete surface on other cul-de-sacs instead of applying new asphalt because garbage trucks that use them to turn around will quickly tear up the new asphalt surfaces.
Feliciana Crossing resident Chuck Moreau said he and his neighbors are pleased with the project, although some thought the jury would never fix the roads. Moreau said the cul-de-sac improvements will make the residents happy.
On another matter, the jury agreed to purchase a new truck for the parish sanitarian with Health Unit funds, providing the vehicle is purchased from a state-contracted vendor. The sanitarian’s vehicle is worn out, jurors said.
The jury tabled a discussion on buying a truck for newly hired parish code enforcement officer Olin Stubbs to use in his work.
Vice President Ed Brooks, who chaired the meeting, said the jury is awaiting a report from Parish Manager J.R. Rouchon on what other vehicles the jury should replace.
