Ever wondered what it would be like to spend $1.5 million dollars? That is what Jackson Parish Police Jury Grants Committee Chairperson Amy Magee, Todd Culpepper and Tarneshala “Niki” Cowans will discuss at the 12:00pm meeting to be held on Wednesday at the Nathaniel Zeno Jr. Meeting Room at the JPPJ Administration Building located at 160 Industrial Drive in Jonesboro.  The fun doesn’t stop there for the three who will also discuss and possibly recommend action on a resolution for DRA Grant to provide 10% funding as well as discuss other grant opportunities.
