DPW UPDATE – 7/13/15


Roadway blacktopping report – this year 37 miles of Parish Maintained roads are scheduled to be blacktopped; to date 41% or 27/63 of the total number roads have been blacktopped / 11.65 MILES TO DATE


DOTD Road Transfer Program – on July 10, A Memo and Mapped Scope of work has been defined; whereas the total credits essentially match the detailed cost estimate of approximately 1.47 million dollars for improvements to Choctaw & Dummyline Roads. The Parish has concurred with this work scope.


   Franklinton Library Parking Lot & Sidewalk – the parking capacity for the Franklinton Branch has been doubled; this news layout establishes a one way  traffic pattern.


   Mosquito Season – this is the time of year that the mosquito population proliferates as the heat and rain bear upon us.  My office receives calls from residents inquiring about mosquito abatement.  A Parishwide spraying program would prove ineffective and very expensive; the land mass of the parish is comprised of 676 square miles. The Parish Roads / Rights of Way occupy                 approximately one tenth of one percent of the total land mass.    Spraying over such a small area will not abate mosquitoes on private property  as resident’s desire.           

   The incorporated Municipalities of the parish do have spraying programs that are effective for the more densely populated sections.
