from the Natchitoches Parish Journal

The Natchitoches Parish Blue Ribbon Charter Commission is only a few items away from being ready to present a first draft of a new parish charter. The group met on Monday to go over financial procedures and general provisions for a parish government.

The financial procedures on the commission’s checklist were items that fell under state law. The items in that section of the charter were all passed unanimously. Meanwhile items under the “general provisions” section were covered in the St. Martin Parish charter which, according to commissioner Jim Gregory, fell in line with what the commission wanted for Natchitoches. The items that got voted on will use wording similar to that found in the St. Martin charter.
