Calcasieu Police Jurors sworn in to new term

Calcasieu Police Jurors began their new four year term today.

There's always an air of excitement when a new term begins and this year, even more than usual.  Must be something to do with that football game.

Jurors, their family and friends crowded into the meeting room, many wearing their purple and gold. Here returning jurors and new ones came to take the oath of office for their four year term.

Eleven are incumbents who voters returned to office though there are four new faces on the jury: from Lake Charles, Nic Hunter, who succeeds long time Juror Charles Mackey, did not seek another term; James Mayo and Tony Guillory a former juror; and Ray Taylor is from Carlyss.

Juror Les Farnum was elected as the police jury president while Dennis Scott was picked for vice president. Farnum says the busy year will probably include finalizing that unified development code. "It will make development within the parish a much easier process to have one source of ordinances to go through instead of having to go to many different books to look up different things. It'll give our contractors and our residents a one stop effort that they need to go through."

 And they'll start inspections of home sewerage systems. "It'll be a good process, we have many sewer systems in the parish that aren't functional at the present time, so, we'll make a vast effort to go through and get all of our sewer systems functional," said Farnum.

 Of the fifteen jurors one was missing-- Hal McMillin from Westlake. Something about a football game. Jurors Sandy Treme and Kevin Guidry were among those joking about Hal's absence.  Said Guidry, "I'm not gonna comment." Reporter: "Where in the world is Hal McMillin? Said Kevin & Sandy, "Who knows, who knows."  Though word is, Hal's at the big LSU game.

No doubt they'll catch up with Hal soon enough to administer the oath.

And so it's an upbeat start to a new four year term for Calcasieu Police Jurors.
