We will start this week’s “Spotlight” with a focus on Bossier City Public Safety. Often times we fail to recognize the men and women that literally give the greater part of their lives to the Safety and Protection of our Citizens. Such men and women are the members of the Bossier City Fire and Police Dept.

This week the Bossier City Fire Dept. saw the retirement and departure of two Chiefs that has worked for 33 and 31 years respectively for the Bossier City Fire Dept. these men are Chief Jeff Roberson and Chief Chuck San Angelo. These men has been shining examples of dedication, commitment and Leadership and their service to this Community is greatly appreciated. Fire Chief Brad Zagone said that he “appreciates their years of service and wish them the best in retirement.”

This week’s City Council meeting went very well with all Council members and Mayor Chandler in attendance as they continue to handle the business of the Citizens of Bossier City.

LIVE Casino held a work fair at the location of the old Diamond Jack’s Casino with the goal being to meet and attract potential vendors and contractors that may qualify to assist with the construction of what promises to be the “Greatest Entertainment Destination in our region.” 

Bossier City Mayor Thomas Chandler is presently the Chairman of NLCOG. North Louisiana Council of Governance. The group had it’s monthly meeting on Friday in it’s regular location at the Shreveport Bar Association Building and Mayor Chandler did a great job of managing the meeting while highlighting the status of local projects in our area.

The Committee on the Charter Commission continues to meet as they chart the direction of the progress that has been made on the charter so that they can report back to the Citizens.

Mayor Chandler has moved forth with his vision of providing Leadership and Customer Service Training to all the employees of Bossier City. This training has began with the Bossier City Fire Dept. and the members found the Training to be beneficial and needed to continue to provide the best services to our Citizens.
