Public Hearing / Regular Meeting

Of the Franklin Parish Police Jury

November 14, 2019

Franklin Parish Police Jury Room

6558 Main Street, Winnsboro, LA 71295

The Franklin Parish Police Jury met in regular Session on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 5:00 P.M. in the Police Jury Meeting Room, Courthouse Building, located at 6558 Main Street, Winnsboro, LA 71295 with the following present: Ricky Campbell, President, K.W. “Buddy” Parks, Vice President, Juror James Harris, Chaplin, Juror Leroy Scott, Juror Joe Lewis, Juror Rawhide Robinson, and Juror Troy Hendry.

President Campbell called the meeting to order. Followed by roll call.

Chaplin James Harris, led the assembly in prayer and the pledge of allegiance.

The motion to approve the agenda was offered by Robinson, seconded by Hendry and was unanimously passed.

President Campbell opened the public hearing to consider the removal of 500 ft. of Judy Guillot Rd. from the parish road system. President Campbell asked for any public comments received. The assistant secretary/treasurer advised that on comment was received by phone. Mrs. Pamela Chiasson called in to voice opposition for removing the 500 ft. Mrs. Chiasson was in attendance and continued to voice her opposition, informing the jury of all the property they own off of Judy Guillot Rd and how much they do use the turnaround at the end of the road, which is the portion that is being requested to be taken out of the road system. Mrs. Chiasson provided the jury with a letter she stated was signed by other residents on the road who opposed the removal of the 500 ft. and made a plea to not remover the 500 ft. because it is still in use by the public. Mr. Sam Neilson asked to speak so President Campbell yielded the floor to him. Mr. Neilson’s wife and mother in-law both currently drive a school bus. His concern is if the 500 ft., which is the turnaround at the end of the road is taken out, where are the buses going to be able to turn around at and if another turnaround is created, where will that turnaround be located? Mrs. Judy Roberts asked about a motion to take the end of Purvis Rd. out of the road system at the last meeting. She voiced her belief that the situation with the parish taking out the end of Purvis Rd. is the same as what has been asked to be done on Judy Guillot Rd. and asked why it was approved to be taken out? President Campbell attempted to explain that it is not the same because the request to take out the end of Purvis Rd. came from the landowner at the end of the road and by taking the end of Purvis Rd. out no one would be landlocked. Additionally, no opposition was received from the public in taking out the requested footage of Purvis Rd. The question then came up of where the garbage truck is turning around. Mrs. Chiasson said that the truck has to back down the road, but both President Campbell and Mrs. Guillot advised that there is a turnaround that the garbage truck uses that is also a driveway to a mobile home on Mrs. Guillot’s property. Juror Scott asked what reason was this request made. Mrs. Guillot was in attendance to answer his question. Mrs. Guillot stated to the jury the reason for the request is that when the Chiassons’ come there is someone constantly on the turnaround and they are disruptive by being there on their side by sides which result in rocks being slung in her yard and ruts are being made. Mrs. Guillot feels that there is no reason that the Chiasson’s need to make that loop to access their property, they have access already.

Further back and forth between Mrs. Chiasson and Mrs. Guillot continued. President Campbell called to close public comments. ADA Kramer instructed the jury that they must continue in the manner they have been deciding when closing a public road. If the policy has been that if there is opposition against closing a road then the jury did not close the road, that policy would have to continue. Juror Harris made a suggestion to table a vote on this for the time being and give both Mrs. Guillot and Mrs. Chiasson a chance to try and come to a compromise and give Atty. Kramer the opportunity to research if the 500 ft. could be taken out if one of the landowners would agree to have a new turnaround constructed. Mrs. Judy Roberts interjected, I know at the last meeting there was the same scenario, very much the same, there was no issue and yall settled it just like that. Everyone agreed with it including Mr. Kramer. I don’t see anything different from what was discussed last month. If Judy has a problem, to me, she should put up a privacy fence if she thinks these people are intruding in her privacy. As long as these people have a way to get into their property without having to make a new road, they pay taxes, make money here, bring money here, they should have access to their property. Juror Parks offered the motion to table and pleaded that all parties come to a compromise. Rawhide seconded the motion. The motion passed with all voting in agreement except Juror Scott who abstained from voting.

President Campbell opened the public hearing to consider the annexation of 1,141 ft. of roadway into the parish road system as part of Lee Parker Rd. Campbell asked for any public comment. No comments were received by the police jury office. Mrs. Daffany Martin advised the jury that she has lived on the road way involved and the parish has always maintained it.

At this time President Campbell asked to move to the supplemental agenda. Ms. Ann Price with the 2020 Census was in attendance to educate the public about the importance of participating in the decennial census. Residents who are not counted cause less money to be allocated to Louisiana and Franklin Parish for schools, roads, rural development, WIC and any governmentally funded program. In 2010 only 70% of Franklin Parish responded to the census. This means 30% of the money that could have been allocated to Franklin Parish was not and also Louisiana lost a congressional seat which is based on population of a state. The decennial census is different from other censuses. The only questions asked to the public is name, race and the number of people living in the household. That is it! This time residents may choose to submit the information online, by phone or wait for a census rep. to come by their home. Additionally, the census is looking for local people to sign up to join the 2020 Census Team. Great pay ($13.00 per hour), flexible hours, weekly pay and paid training. If anyone is interested they may apply online at 2020census.gov/jobs.
