Recreation Board moves forward with Golf Course projects

Minutes from the July 19th meeting of the Jackson Parish Recreation Board have been released. While the discussions did not get down and dirty it was about getting dirt down so the projects of building a new golf cart storage shed and revamping the spillway could get underway.

Board members Ricky Cash, Jeff Hairston, Brandon Lamkin, Sullivan Stevens and Chris Womack accepted the bid of $29,000.00 from T&S Brown Contractors for dirt work on the golf cart shed. They also hired Riley Company of Ruston, LA to work up plans for reconstructing and replacing the spillway and to get quotes on the work.

In other business regarding the Golf Course, Jackson Parish Recreation Department Director Tommy Smith let the board know that he would be penning a letter to all golfers that they must check in before playing and that there is a no dog policy in place, subject to loss of golfing privileges if not adhered to.

Attorney Steven Gatlin and Engineer Paul Riley followed by stating the land survey is almost finished and a preliminary plat of the acreage that the JPRD is proposing to buy has been submitted to Weyerhaeuser for approval.
