Jefferson Parish has selected The New Orleans Advocate as its official journal to publish legal notices and other announcements, while Kenner, Westwego and Gretna have chosen The Times-Picayune.
All of the selections were made unanimously and according to the lowest bid.
The Kenner and Gretna awards mark a change from the current year, which ends June 30.
The Jefferson Parish Council on Wednesday accepted The New Orleans Advocate’s bid of 23 cents per column inch over The Times-Picayune’s bid of 24 cents.
The same day, the Gretna City Council went with The Times-Picayune’s bid of 39 cents per column inch, compared with 47 cents from The New Orleans Advocate.
On Monday, the Westwego City Council voted to continue publishing its notices in The Times-Picayune for 39 cents per column inch, over The New Orleans Advocate’s bid of 54 cents.
Last week, the Kenner City Council selected The Times-Picayune’s bid of 50 cents per column inch over The New Orleans Advocate’s bid of 79 cents.
Harahan, which currently publishes notices in The New Orleans Advocate, is scheduled to make its decision June 18.
The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office won’t decide on its two contracts — official journal and judicial advertising — until June 19.
