PUBLIC HEARING
JUNE 25, 2014
FRANKLIN, LOUISIANA
The St. Mary Parish Council held a Public Hearing on this date with Steve Bierhorst, Chairman presiding and the following members present: Lionel Metz, Charles Middleton, David Hanagriff, Glen Hidalgo, Ken Singleton, Tim Tregle, Sterling Fryou, Albert Foulcard and Kevin Voisin. Absent was Logan Fromenthal.

The purpose of the Public Meeting was to receive written and/or oral comments and to adopt the following ordinances:

An Ordinance installing a Four-Way Stop sign at the
intersection of Southeast Boulevard and Delmar Street
Bayou Vista, Louisiana.

An Ordinance installing a Three-Way Stop sign at
the intersection of Arlington Street and Fairview Street
Bayou Vista, Louisiana.

An ordinance to amend section 8-2, “Precincts Designated”,
of the St. Mary Parish code of ordinances.

An ordinance declaring certain Public Property surplus and authorizing
the sale of same.

In regard to the ordinance to amend section 8-2, “Precincts Designated”, of the St. Mary Parish code of ordinances…., Mrs. Morgan stated that a letter was received from Joanne C. Reed, Director of Voter Registration, State of Louisiana that they are in receipt of your letter and proposed ordinance in regard to the precincts with less than 300 active registered voters.

The following mergers of precincts have been reviewed for same voting districts and are approved.

Precincts 05 & o6 merge into 06
Precincts 06A & 07 merge into 07
Precincts 40 & 41A to merge and redescribe new precincts 40 & 41
Precincts 42A & 45 merge into 45

The survey form for precinct 24 indicated 2.5 miles as the greatest distance a voter would have to travel if the polling place for this precinct would be moved to either precinct 30 or 31. I have noted the distance is over 10 miles and therefore meets the requirement of an exemption allowed by state law.

In regard to an ordinance declaring certain Public Property surplus and authorizing the sale of same, the following corrections and additions were included in the ordinance:
