The winter storm that dumped several inches of snow on Jackson Parish was a beautiful sight to see but caused several regularly scheduled, governmental meetings to be postponed to a later date. Included is the regularly scheduled meeting of the Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ) and the public hearing that was to be held just prior, as well as the monthly meeting of the Jackson Parish School Board (JPSB).
Also affected were the Jonesboro Board of Aldermen meeting that instead of taking place Jonesboro City Hall was held via phone conference on January 12th and the District 2 Fire Protection Board meeting that was scheduled for this past Tuesday that at present has no new meeting date established.
New meeting dates have been set beginning with the JPSB now convening on Thursday at the Jonesboro-Hodge High School cafeteria. Committee meetings start at 5:30pm followed by the January meeting of the Board.
The Jackson Parish Police Jury and the public hearing that is scheduled beforehand will now take place on Tuesday, January 19th at the JPPJ Administrative Building, located at 160 Industrial Drive in Jonesboro. The public hearing, where comments on the recommendations involving the William Shows Road, Choctaw Road, McKeaver Road, Springfield Road and St. Clair Road, will begin at 5:15 pm followed by the monthly meeting of the Police Jury.
