For the last two months the Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ) has been forced to conduct their monthly meeting over the phone. That will no longer be the case as at 5:30 PM on May 18th at the Charles H. Garrett Community Center in Jonesboro the JPPJ will hold an open meeting that the public is invited to.
The meeting is the regularly May meeting that was supposed to be held on May 11th but postponed to allow face to face discussion among jurors and the public. The following statement was also issued
“We are taking precautions during this time to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and employees. Additional measures will be taken at our facility to ensure proper social distancing.”
Additional meetings scheduled to be held this week are:
- Recreation District Board 5/18 @ 12:00 pm
- Library Board 5/18 @ 4:30 PM
- Tourism Board 5/18 @ 5:30 PM
- Hodge Fire Protection District 5/18 @ 6:00 PM
Please check to verify if these are open meetings or not before showing up.
