Bossier council looking to establish Administrative Court

Mayoir Lo Walker presents certificates to Bettye Daniels McCauley, Roy Griggs and Uelyss “Buddy” Reed, Jr.

At Tuesday’s Bossier City Council agenda meeting, the council discussed an ordinance that would create a mini committee for certain public hearings.

Next week, the city council will vote whether or not to adopt an ordinance to establish the Bossier City Administrative Court under the authorization and provision of LA R.S 13:2575.

If approved, this mini committee will be formed to discuss certain hearings prior to their appearance before the city council. The Administrative Court would address such items as property standards, hearings for demolition and so on.

By doing so, this will get some accountability done quickly for those situations, authors of the ordinance said.

Also conducted during Tuesday’s meeting, three outstanding local African American leaders were honored with proclamations for their service to the community.

In celebration of Black History Month, Mayor Lo Walker and the Council proclaimed Tuesday, February 25, 2020 as “Black American Leadership Recognition Day.”

The honorees were Bettye Daniels McCauley, Roy Griggs and Uelyss “Buddy” Reed, Jr.

Other items that will be discussed at next week’s agenda meeting include adoption of an ordinance restricting access to Bossier City Water and Sewer facilities without prior approval from Manchac Consulting Group, Inc and adoption of an ordinance to accept the dedication into the City Street System the streets within Plantation Trace Garden Homes Unity No. 3 and Unit No.4.
