Welcome to Washington Parish and all that it has to offer!

Our mission is to serve You, the Public.

If there is something that is of concern to you that is not addressed on this website, please check our link, "How Can We Assist You?". You have my personal pledge that if you have an issue that needs addressing and you can not find it here, we will make sure that it gets to the proper department for a resolution.
