Jonesboro Board of Aldermen holds monthly meeting

A small agenda led to a rare short meeting that saw the Jonesboro Board of Aldermen discuss several items but not take much action at their regularly scheduled meeting that was held on Tuesday, June 13th. 

The couple of items that were acted on was the selection of the Ruston Daily Leader to be the official journal for the Town of Jonesboro for the fiscal year 2023-24 and 1001 Leon Drive be rezoned from residential to business. 

A suggestion was entered by Councilman Robert Hunter to have a speed bump placed on Johnson Street and discussion was held about designating Leon Drive from Tony Street to Hwy 4 a truck route. 

Councilman James Ginn asked if it was possible to simply the Nuisance Ordinance that is in place and Mayor James “Spike” Harris recommended that the town enter into a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement with the Jackson Parish Sheriff Department in regard to water and sewage for the new Jail facility that is being built on Gansville Road. All of the items that were discussed are expected to be acted on in the July meeting.
