Jackson Parish Recreation Board makes plans for 2022

The Jackson Parish Recreation Board looked to the future and made operational plans for 2022 at their regularly scheduled monthly meeting held at the Banquet Room of the Jackson Parish Golf Course on Monday, November 15th.

The panel of Ricky Cash, Brandon Lamkin, Rodney Potts and Sullivan Stevens decided to set 2022 board meeting on the third Monday of month at 6:00 pm, excluding holidays along with approving to retain the Law Office of Steven M. Gatlin as their legal counsel. In additional action the Winn Parish Enterprise was selected as the official journal of the Board. Brent Barnett, Jeff Hairston and Chris Womack were absent from the proceedings.

After the minutes and financials from October were approved, Recreation Director, Tommy Smith, gave an update on some of the ongoing programs of the Jackson Parish Rec Department (JPRD) including the archery/shooting range and basketball. He also presented the board with an email received from Mr. Jonathan Plunkett thanking the JPRD for allowing the LACC to have their race at the sports complex, located on Hwy 4 East.

Two more agenda items were tabled including the decision on a bid from DG&E Logging for timber cutting at the Golf Course until more information is received from the bidder on time and date of the project. Also tabled was the purchase of playground equipment for the Village North Hodge until more is learned on what the total cost of equipment and installation would be.

In final action the board agreed to schedule a budget hearing for 11:30am on Monday, December 20, 2021 in the Banquet Room of the Jackson Parish Golf Course followed by the regularly scheduled monthly meeting to be held at 12:00pm.
