The new hospital is designed as a modern brick-and-glass structure featuring 12 inpatient beds, a fully equipped emergency room, an imaging center with new equipment, a

beefed-up lab, plus room for more services. The council also heard a lengthy presentation from James Jenkins, of Municipal Code Corporation, the company hired by the parish to update the parish’s codes. Jenkins presented a “proof that’s probably 85 percent complete� of the updated codes in a 400-page docu-

ment available on the parish’s website, wfparish.org. “It’s a one-stop shop for all building regulations,� Jenkins said. After the document has been reviewed and vetted by the parish staff, the council and the public, it will be voted on for adoption by the council. An ordinance also was intro-

duced to amend the parish’s general fund budget to cover an additional $66,693 to pay for litigation expenses and lawyers’ fees in the lawsuit filed by the Lambert Gravel Company and the heirs of Paul A. Lambert Sr. over a piece of disputed riverfront property. So far, the suit has cost the parish more than $572,579.

School Board OKs salary increases Employee pay frozen past two years BY HOWARD ARCENEAUX Special to The Advocate

ST. FRANCISVILLE — The West Feliciana Parish School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to lift the salary schedule freeze, allowing all but about 40 school district employees to receive annual step increases. School Board Administrator Ruthie Davis said there is enough money in the projected 2015-16 budget to cover the estimated $240,000 annual expense that unfreezing the raises will cost the School Board. This is the second school year that system employees with 25 or fewer years have not received the annual step increases in their pay. Employees with more than 25 years with the system are not eligible for additional annual increases. Unfreezing the salaries was identified as one of the top priorities at the School Board’s annual strategic planning retreat in March. Superintendent Hollis Milton previously said one parish supervisor is retiring, freeing roughly $100,000 a year, and the parish has been approved for a state LA4 grant, which provides fund-

Louisiana’s reputation as Hollywood south is ringing true these days in two East Feliciana towns as filming for one cable television series is underway in Jackson and production is ramping up in Clinton for a movie. Both towns are expecting economic advantages from film crews working in the areas. The two towns are seeing paved streets turned into dirt roads and the construction of sets for the Civil War-era productions.

Board names two new principals BY HOWARD ARCENEAUX Special to The Advocate

ST. FRANCISVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The West Feliciana School Board on Tuesday officially appointed Jovanka Ganes as principal at West Feliciana Middle School and Andrea Mathis as principal at Baines Lower Elementary School. Ganes has served as interim principal since Ben Necaise resigned to take a job with the state Department of Education. Prior to that appointment, Ganes had been assistant principal since 2006 and a counselor at the school from 1999 to 2006. She has been with the school district since 1988 and has bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degrees from Southern University. After the unanimous vote, Ganes told the school board, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you all. It was a very rigorous interview process,

and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honored to have been selected. I accepted because I love it here, and I want to grow professionally. Parents send their kids to our schools for two reasons: because they want the best education we can give them and they want them to be safe each and every day. I look forward to working with my staff and teachers. I look forward to this opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Mathis has served as an assistant principal at Dufrocq School in Baton Rouge since July 2009. Previously, she was an assistant principal and speech language pathologist at Northeast Elementary School in Pride. She also worked

with the Federal Emergency Management Agency for a year and was a special education teacher/site facilitator at Glen Oaks Park Elementary Magnet in Baton Rouge. She also has bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degrees from Southern University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honored to be principal of Baines Elementary,â&#x20AC;? said Mathis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look forward to working with the teachers, staff, parents and community stake holders, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so grateful for this op-

portunity.â&#x20AC;? Superintendent Hollis Milton praised both educators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ms. Ganes was at the middle school when it first started and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an integral piece in its development. And sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a big part of all its successes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ms. Mathis has been a star teacher and administrator for a number of years. And she brings a wealth of experience to Baines Lower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are both community oriented, teacher friendly and family oriented. They are assets to our schools.â&#x20AC;?

and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working toward that.â&#x20AC;? Board member James White said he believes West Felicianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Board members are among the lowest-paid in the state. Each elected member receives $350 per month, with the president of the panel earning an additional $50 per month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see what other boards are getting,â&#x20AC;? White said. Members Kelly Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and Amanda McKinney were not enthusiastic about seeking a pay raise.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the state of where we are, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure we should look at increasing our salaries,â&#x20AC;? McKinney said. Board President Kevin Beauchamp noted: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew what the pay was when I ran for office.â&#x20AC;? Board member Milton Coats suggested, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think any of us are serving for the money. But in fairness to his request, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do an analysis and see where we are.â&#x20AC;? The board authorized Davis to study the issue and she agreed to provide the information at a future meeting.

PAY

Continued from page 1G ing for prekindergarten, for another $137,000 for the next fiscal year. Any remainder of the expense for the raises will be absorbed by the operating budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only as good as our people and the quality will stay there if we do this,â&#x20AC;? said Milton, who received a 34 percent pay increase with his new contract. He is being paid $158,000 a year under the new

contract plus $9,600 a year for incidentals like mileage and phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to show the employees that after a successful school year, we value them,â&#x20AC;? Milton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have topquality folks.â&#x20AC;? As for those employees with 25 years or more experience, Milton told the board he is working with Davis to find a way to also provide them with additional pay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people with 25 to 30 years are appreciated and add the same value,â&#x20AC;? Milton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to see how to do it,

The idea for all McKowen alumni â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the classes of 1910 to 1962 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to come together for one reunion was alumna Lucille Fluker Priddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea about 35 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone loved the idea, so committees were formed and the first big reunion was held in 1985,â&#x20AC;? said Beth Dawson, wife of 1959 graduate Scotty Dawson.

St. Helena Parish job fair â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;exceededâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expectations Advocate staff report St. Helena Parish held its first job fair April 23 at Northshore Technical Community College in Greensburg. More than 15 companies participated in the job fair, each providing information on different job opportunities. Parish administrator Virginia Bell said that because this was the first such event for St. Helena, parish leaders were somewhat apprehensive about its outcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With so many people coming out to the fair, the companies present were able to visit with many applicants, and I think it exceeded most of our expectations,â&#x20AC;? Bell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I questioned all the companies as they packed up to leave, and each one said that it had been a productive day for them.â&#x20AC;? People who were looking for jobs were able to connect with companies looking for workers. Bell said that, overall, she was proud of the outcome and looks forward to holding another job fair in the near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In an event such as this, everyone wins,â&#x20AC;? Bell said.

Beginning of wedding season around corner Tomorrow marks the first day of May, the month that begins what most would call â&#x20AC;&#x153;wedding season.â&#x20AC;? If you are planning a wedding this month or in the next few months and want fresh flowers, be sure to check with your florists on what flowers will be in bloom on your wedding day.

A 12-step Food Addicts Anonymous meeting will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday at the West Feliciana Parish Library, Room B, 5114 Burnett Road, in St. Francisville. According to the FAA website, food addiction is a biochemical disorder that occurs at the cellular level and cannot be cured by willpower or by therapy alone. Food addiction manifests

itself in the uncontrollable craving for excess food that follows the ingestion of refined carbohydrates, primarily sugar and flour substances that are quickly metabolized and turned into sugar in the bloodstream. Physical symptoms of food addiction can include: thinking you cannot control your intake of food, especially junk food or high sugar foods; trying different diets or weight loss programs unsuccessfully; and vomiting, using laxatives, diuretics or exercising to avoid weight gain after eating a lot. FAA is self-supporting through its own contributions and there are no dues or fees required for membership, only a desire to stop eating addictive foods. The group is not affiliated with any diet or weight loss programs, treatment facilities or religious

organizations and does not endorse nor oppose any causes. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary purpose is to stay abstinent and help other food addicts achieve abstinence. For information, visit www. foodaddictsanonymous.org.

Students in Mary Trigg’s kindergarten class at Jackson Elementary School adopted a pet rabbit in April. Before adopting the pet, the class read books and articles about what rabbits like to eat, how rabbits hear and how to care for rabbits. They practiced their social studies and math skills by voting on a name for the rabbit and then created a histogram to see which name got the most votes. They also wrote thankyou letters to the foster parent of the rabbit, named Buttercup by the class.

ST. FRANCISVILLE — West Feliciana Parish High School students got the chance to explore life after high school on April 13 as the school hosted its annual College and Career Connection night. More than 100 high school students, parents and volunteers explored college and career options and heard an uplifting message from keynote speaker and “edu-tainer” Adolf Brown, a youth motivational speaker and educator from Virginia. “He is one of the best speakers we have ever had come to the school. He covered a lot of topics from education to relationships,” senior Jazz Ferguson said of Brown. Parent Kati Williamson called Brown’s message “poignant, spirited and directly on target for all that attended.” “He has a special gift of entertaining while teaching,” Williamson said. “We laughed and

West Feliciana

Members of Girl Scout Daisy Troop 10099, sponsored by Bains Lower Elementary School in St. Francisville, met with Layne Langley, LSU Agricultural Center area nutrition agent of Livingston and West Feliciana parishes, in early spring in an effort to earn My Best Self patches. The kindergarten and first-graders learned about MyPlate, which emphasizes healthy meal choices using the dairy, fruit, grain, protein and vegetable food groups, and worked in teams to design their own versions of MyPlate. “Having learned about the MyPlate food groups during Play 30, the teams easily created ‘balanced’ plates,” Langley said.

The Daisies also played Exercise SpinZone, which included spinning a wheel and watching it land on a food group that had the girls selecting specific foods within each group, Langley said. “They enjoyed the physical activity part that had them performing exercises depending on where the ‘spinner’ landed. After the activities, the Daisies made peanut butter faces by using bananas, raisins and rice cakes for the facial parts,” said Langley. The Daisy troop leaders are Anna Pate and Earlisha Whitfield. Co-troop leaders are Alaina LaCour and Anita Sadler, both of Bains Lower Elementary.

al items and placement of agenda Items 7.B.(1) and (2) on the Board Agenda today. He then turned the floor over to C.P.A. LeJeune for his presentation on Board agenda Item 7.B.(1).

setting ourselves up for failure. Now, just know that even as we find these Dollars it puts us into a situation, but if I can remember correctly, it is going to put us in the situation of having a very similar year of another “Break-Even Year”, correct?

Hollins, Jelks, along with responses by Dr. Lewis, Board President Bradford called for a motion to adjourn.

again we will ask that Mr. Brooks, Mrs. J. Kent and Mrs. Dawson, please join me in opening these packets and Mr. D’Aquilla.

There being no further business to come before the Board, a motion for adjournment by Mr. Terrell, seconded by Mrs. J. Kent, prevailed until the next regular meeting unless called into special session by the President.

Board Member Corcoran questioned is that not going to cause any conflict with anybody else?

said “Certified Mail”. So our D.A. Mr. D’Aquilla after meeting did some research and so yes, you may go to the United States Post Office and “Certify” a Package and we all know about that and usually when you do it, you have the “Green Card” that is on the outside of the Envelope. But there are other avenues that you actually can get true “Certified Mail” and one (1) of the Applicants, it is my understanding actually sent a copy of the “Receipt” where she showed that her Package was actually “Certified” and so that was the initial intent to bring this conversation back to the Board. Because I think as a School District, going back to what Mr. Corcoran said we do not want to have any missed steps and so I believe because that was not explored at the last meeting, what truly means what is “Certified” and what is not. You have at least two (2) applications in there that you all need to look at and to decide if it legit, because they were truly “Certified”, but they were excluded because I believe at the meeting it was that it was not United States Postal Service “Certified” and so those people were excluded at the last meeting.

related me, personally, I think we have a Member of the Chamber of Commerce and that kind of covers the business part of the entire committee.

Item 6.B. motion to set daily rate of pay for Interim Superintendent Edna Thomas {effective date: Monday, March 16, 2015 (beginning of work day)}, revised to {effective date: Wednesday, March 18, 2015 (beginning of work day)} and called for a motion.

Item 7.B.(1) T o m m y LeJeune, C.P.A., Member of Faulk & Winkler LLC distributed to Board Members present a copy of his handout entitled “East Feliciana Parish School Board 2015 and 2016 Operating budgets Talking points” (a copy of which is attached hereto for reference) and reviewed information contained therein which outlines projected deficit spending for the 2015/2016 Budget of approximately $800,000.00 due to increased costs over 2014 by approximately $1.2 Million Dollars, Major changes that need to occur utilizing Options 1 Employee Attrition 82% of Budget is Personnel, Option 2 - Campus Consolidation and eliminate any 13th Checks or Option 3 Reduction in Force. He concluded with the Timeline for discussions to continue in February, March, 2015, introduction of adjusted Budget plan in April in order to accomplish Staffing prior to end of 2014/2015 School Year and Adoption at June Board Meeting. Board President Bradford turned the floor over to Dr. Lewis. Dr. Lewis related again this is something we have been talking about for the last two (2) years, we also have been discussing with our Charter School is at full capacity, will be 7th thru 12th Grades in the 15/16 SY, that the District would be facing the conversation that we are having right now. Also, before we started this particular 14/15 School Year and as we were preparing this Budget, we prepared a Budget that was “Break-Even Budget” and pretty much what is happening every single month is that as we look at what we have budgeted for that month and the expenses are neck and neck. So it lets you see that truly our predictions at the beginning of this School Year is that it was going to be a “BreakEven Year” and Month-toMonth what we are doing is we are “Breaking-Even”. So that says this is the type of year we are having and I am saying that to say this if what we predicted prior to the start of this School Year, every Month is holding true. Please know that what we are predicting for next School Year, if we do not do anything about it, the same thing will be the case. What Mr. LeJeune is saying is that if we do not do something differently, then we are setting the District up to Deficit Spending. He noted not having a District right now that has a Fund Reserve of $10 Million Dollars, for example. He related there are Districts out there for the last two (2) years or so that have been Deficit Spending, but they have a large reserve and so they are able to still maintain. He noted if we begin the practice here in East Feliciana of Deficit Spending then when we truly Deficit Spend we go down to zero (0), where other Districts have money to hold on to. So, I know it has been a very tough conversation every time we bring up the possibility of Closing a Campus. I know as you represent your constituents, where the school is going to be located, I understand that we have some issues there. But we are at the point now that a tough decision is going to have to be made, because it is for the betterment of the organization and for us here in East Feliciana to be able to sustain. So as future meetings are scheduled, we need to give a strong consideration to the proposal we had given you for taking the Middle School and the High School, combining that into a 7th thru 12th Grade School and having our Elementary Schools to go thru 6th Grade. That is something that if we do that will significantly help the situation that the District is facing at this time. Because in addition to taking care of this, we have been in our Schools, we know that we also in our Maintenance and Operations Accounts there are dollars that have been dedicated by the Taxpayers to do repairs to the buildings. For several years there has been a lot of “patch work”, but now we are at the point where we have some serious Maintenance Issues that must be addressed. In addition to this School Year when we had the Office of Civil Rights to do their visit and one thing for EFHS for example, we have to bring our restrooms to ADA Compliance and in addition to EFHS which is going to be officially in their report, the Individuals that monitored the schools said that even though the report will say you need to do this for EFHS and the Government will see that it is done, they also said to us that you need to make sure that every single School is in compliance. Because if someone has a handicap or a need and they are going into one of our Buildings and we can not accommodate them, well with the law that is an issue. So even though the report is going to clearly say for EFHS, they strongly suggested for us to actually look at bringing every single Campus to date in that area. So in addition to Consolidation, many Districts and this will have a huge impact on East Feliciana, but any Districts now if you go there Para Professionals if it is not required by Special Education, many Districts because of funding they are not longer having Para Professionals outside of the requirements of Special Education. So that is something that we have to look at here in the District. As Mr. LeJeune also mentioned, we have many of our Teachers who are “Temporary Employees” and those individuals have to re-apply for the positions at the end of this School Year. So what probably will happen through attrition and through retirements, eliminating some positions. Now based on saying that I believe that our Teachers who have been with us throughout the years, because we have so many Temporary Employees, we have so many Un-Certified Teachers, I do not really believe that it will affect our Teachers who have been here in the District year after year, because we have so many Temporary Employees that actually came on Board this year. Then we have many that are also Un-Certified Teachers. Then the other matter is that Grants are wonderful, you know Grants allow us to be able to do things in the District that we would not typically be able to do without having that funding source. So for the last 4 Years we had the SRCL Grant, but what happens every single year that you have a Grant it may start off where the Grant pays 80% and you pay 20%, but the next year it is going to be 75% and they you pay 25% and so next School Year with the SRCL Grant that we have, I believe the District is going to be responsible for 35%? Dr. Roddy related 40%. Dr. Lewis continued 40%, so the Grant will only cover 60%, so now the District has to take on that additional burden of that 40% to pay the salaries. So all of the information that we are sharing of course is really not anything new. We have been having these discussions for the last two (2) years, but really we are at the point of now, we have to do something about it. So as future Finance Committees are put together, a plan just needs to be put in place so that we can find $1 Million Dollars in the upcoming School Years Budget so that we are not

C.P.A. right.

LeJeune

related

Dr. Lewis continued yes. So that is really where we are so as a Board, I know it is really tough decisions, but I strongly recommend as we go to future months that you strongly consider the Original Plan from two (2) years ago of making a 7th - 12th Grade High School and I know St. Helena actually transitioned to a K-6th and a 7th 12th Grade High School now and that is how they are operating. Board Member Corcoran questioned do you have a number or an amount that it would save doing that? Dr. Lewis related yes, we have that information Mr. Bell prepared from the Maintenance side for Mr. LeJeune. C.P.A. LeJeune related it was just North of ½ Million Dollars and we felt like we probably needed to work that number maybe a little more. Board Member Corcoran questioned refine that number a little bit? Dr. Lewis related yes. C.P.A. LeJeune noted the initial number that I saw just over a ½ Million Dollars. Board President Bradford questioned how would that save us, you still have to come back and cut your employees or use less employees? C.P.A. LeJeune related that is what you are doing, you are operating one (1) less school. Dr. Lewis related the Maintenance for a particular School and even when you look at the School, and I am sorry Principals I am going to use this example, but when you look at a Principal’s Salary of about $70,000.00 and you add the Benefits that is pretty much $100,000.00 right there. So the list goes on and on, but that is one example. C.P.A. LeJeune related it is the costs of occupancy with that School, the electricity, but it is primarily People and salaries you would be saving. Board Member P. Kent questioned Dr. Lewis would it be in our favor, I know we are on a short time line here from now to June anyway, is to possibly look at what we payout in Transportation, fuel, etc. is one, Maintenance may be another is maybe “out sourcing” or just looking at it as an “out source” and trying to save money there also. But I do not know if we have time enough to bring these in, they would just have to come in here and just talk to us about it and see you know. Dr. Lewis related what he would say at this point is we have to be very creative in looking and look at every avenue to see if even “out sourcing” certain things would actually bring a savings to the District. And if that is the case then maybe that is something that the District would consider. Board President Bradford related and hopefully we would have our new Superintendent set to help make these decisions. We know the decisions have to be made. Dr. Lewis related he would love for this to be made before the person comes on so they can focus on their new job and I am just speaking from my own personal experiences, coming in and was given the job and found out that the District was in Deficit Spending. Board President Bradford related this is going to be on whomever is here, Dr. Lewis of whomever is here, it is going to be rough on them anyway it goes. But when you are short of money, you are short of money. Dr. Lewis related but that person will come in June and then that is really going to set the District up for failure if you wait until the new person comes on board. Board Member P. Kent related and this is going to be a Board decision, not a Superintendents’ decision, it is going to be a Boards decision. So we might as well get ready to bite the bullet and make that decision. Dr. Lewis related again I have to say that even part of your conversation, we have been actually talking about it for the last two (2) years, so this is not a new conversation. Board Member Corcoran questioned and where did you say you can save the most money? C.P.A. LeJeune Personnel.

related

Board Member Jelks questioned do ya’ll have an indication of what Building you would shut down? Board President Bradford said what I asked you months ago, you would not give us an answer on that, so don’t give one tonight! Dr. Lewis related I am not! I will not. Board Member Hollins related the latest Building in the Parish, would be the logical one. Board President Bradford related lets leave that alone, we appreciate what you have told us. Board Member P. Kent related from the Finance Committee prospective, we are going to have to make that decision on whatever and whatever we make we have got to live with. But we are going to be dyer straights if we do not make that decision that is going to help this System and then again, we have got to look at educating the kids and what is best for them and what we can give them the most of, that is the thing. C.P.A. LeJeune you have got to find the right balance. Board Member Hollins related a Reduction in Force would not be in the best interest, I mean you need people to teach the Students. Board President Bradford related that is true. Board Member P. Kent related over this time, please look at this and think about it and let’s talk. Item 7.B.(2) B o a r d President Bradford turned the floor over to Dr. Lewis. Dr. Lewis reviewed with Board Members present information covering Board agenda Item 7.B.(2) of Local Revenue Funding for School System, Expiration Dates, Election Dates and Deadlines for Propositions (a copy of which is attached hereto and made a part hereof) which information was also discussed at the Finance Committee Meeting on February 25, 2015. Board Member Rhonda Matthews left the meeting at this time. Board President Bradford then asked for any public questions or comments before a vote is taken on this motion.

Board President Bradford related on our last meeting we opened our applicants package we asked for them to be delivered by Certified Mail and we did receive some calls concerning this issue and we found out that two (2) of the candidates did send theirs by certification, the third (3rd) came by Express Mail and through our legal advice from our District Attorney and also our School Board Attorney Mr. Bob Hammonds they recommend that we open these or those three (3) applicants. Also, there is a fourth (4th) applicant that did not have a State Certification in it and again, with Mr. Hammonds advice and with our District Attorney, they advised us to also interview that person with no certification. Mr. D’Aquilla did you want to expand on that? Samuel D’Aquilla, 20th Judicial District Attorney related and the Board is not trying to exclude anybody, everybody made an application, they are not trying to exclude anybody or exclude anybodies applications, we trying to make it as open as we can. So that is the consensus that we have, Mr. Hammonds, we had a Conference Call before the meeting started today and he said it would be acceptable to include those four (4). He noted they had two (2) that came late, those are obviously excluded and we are not going to be able to look at those, but we are going to reconsider those four (4) packets. Board President Bradford related okay. So at this time we will take a recess and

D.A. D’Aquilla related no, it shouldn’t. Board Member Corcoran questioned with any other applicants? D.A. D’Aquilla related I think we only had thirteen (13) applicants, is that correct? Board Member Dawson related only twelve (12) wasn’t it, one of them was twice? Board President Bradford related yes, that is true Mrs. Dawson. D.A. D’Aquilla related yes, one of them was twice, there was twelve (12). Board Member Corcoran related because if you favor one, you’ve gotta do the rest... Board President Bradford related well basically we are not favoring anyone with this. Board Member Corcoran related I know but we had or there were some stipulations, I mean why did we have stipulations then? I mean I am not trying to, I just want to know. There was a procedure and it was not followed. D.A. D’Aquilla related it may have one (1) that obviously excluded because she did not have an application in there, that is a requirement that it needed an application, that excluded out right… Board Member Corcoran related yes. D.A. D’Aquilla continued and the other ones were excluded for what reason? Board Member Dawson related one (1) didn’t sign it. Board President Bradford related that is the same one with the applicant, it came in without Certified... Board Member Matthews related Certified Mail. Board President Bradford continued without Certified, but two (2) of them was Certified, the really was Certified. D.A. D’Aquilla related after examining the envelopes, it is determined that they were Certified through the U.S. Postal Services. He related Certified Mail is a Service through the United States Postal Service whereby they have some type of Tracking mechanism used to say that the package was delivered. Board Member Corcoran questioned so it doesn’t need to say “Certified” on that, like this package right here says “Certified Mail” on it and other ones don’t say “Certified”? D.A. D’Aquilla related it had a ugh “Green Card” that was attached to it and it didn’t have “Certified” on there but it was sent and it has a Certification Card on there that was sent... Board Member Corcoran questioned if somebody feels that they were wronged, they can’t come back on us and say, you let it go because it said “Certified” and they didn’t have “Certified” written on it, do you understand? D.A. D’Aquilla related what we are doing is we are actually opening it up to include those people. Board Member Corcoran related okay, so there is not going to be anyone left out? Board President Bradford related exactly. Board Member Paul Kent questioned why do we entertain or why would we entertain somebody that does not have their Certificate? Board President Bradford questioned are you talking about as far as their Certification? Board Member Paul Kent related yes. Board President Bradford related well what Mr. Hammonds is saying is basically, Louisiana really don’t calls for S u p e r i n t e n d e n t Certification, he said there is a lot of Superintendents that don’t have Certification. And also to, if a the way the Law states if there is a Superintendent, for example there is a Superintendent to say Dr. Lewis is from Texas, he has State or he is Certified in the State of Louisiana, but the way the Law reads is once he comes to the State of Louisiana and he is hired, he can automatically be Certified for the State of Louisiana. Dr. Lewis related so we have two (2) applicants and I believe that one person is from Maryland and the other person is from Texas and so those individuals are not currently in the State and so the way the State Certification works is that if someone holds a Certification for Superintendent in another State and they are going to Louisiana. For example, they will not get a Certificate for Louisiana until they are actually employed and so what happens if someone holds a Certification in Texas for example and they interview in Louisiana and a School District is deciding that this is who they want for their Candidate, then what happens according to the Guidelines that are set forth by the State at that point the Employing District which would be East Feliciana at that time would actually prepare a document that goes along with the Certification Packet to say that we are hiring this person as a Superintendent, they are Certified in another State and at the point the State would go ahead and issue a five (5) year Certificate for that Individual. And so you have two (2) Candidates that hold Out-of-State Certification and I believe and D.A. D’Aquilla correct me if I am wrong, there are two (2) other people that actually their packets were “Certified” if I am not mistaken... Board President Bradford related yes. Dr. Lewis continued that were excluded. Board President Bradford related okay. D.A. D’Aquilla related and that just depends upon what the Board wants to approve too, ya’ll don’t have to approve them, I mean you can either disapprove them or go with what you have right now. Board Member Corcoran related well, I mean you had a set of rules and that might be because you went too fast and didn’t cover all of the bases first and having to go back now and change the rules. You set some rules and some pretty easy guidelines and now you have got to go back and change them, because possibly it was too hasty from the get go. I mean I am just a thought. Dr. Lewis related if I may, I think that one thing that was not clarified at the last meeting was “What is the meaning of a “Certified Mail Package”. Is this a package that is solely that you go to the United States Post Office and say “I want this Package Certified” or are you able to go to Federal Express or that and so the advertisement just

Board Member Dawson related if she remembers right and my memory is shot, but when hired a Superintendent for Out-OfState and ya’ll know whom I am talking about and he caused us all kind of chaos. Board Member Paul Kent related that is because he never could get Certification. Vice-President Harrell related Certification. Board President Bradford related we are speaking about “Certified”. They are “Certified” and that person didn’t have anything. Board Member Paul Kent related they would be given a chance to go get their Certification. Board President Bradford related exactly, yes. Board Member Paul Kent continued from the State of Louisiana. Board President Bradford related basically we only have thirteen (13) applicants and we want the best person for our District and me personally and I think Mr. Hammonds and also Mr. D’Aquilla agreed on this also and that when you are looking for a Superintendent you want the best person, you know you try to look at everybody to get that best person. That is what I was thinking. Board Member Paul Kent related I don’t have a problem with it, I don’t have a problem. Board President Bradford then turned the floor over to Mr. Minton. James Minton, Reporter for The Advocate Newspaper asked Board President Bradford to call out the last names of the people you adding? Board President Bradford related we are going to open their packets first and when I come back, I will do that. James Minton, Reporter related he does not want to make a mistake. Board President Bradford related at this time we will recess and we will go into the back. Board Members in attendance concurred. Board Members absent: Terrell, Hollins and Spears.

Dixon, Prairieville, LA (2) Miss Victoria Miles, Fort Worth, TX (3) Dr. Charles S. Michel, Metairie, LA (4) Miss Arronza LaBatt, Boyd, MD Board Member Paul Kent questioned and you said four (4)?

Board Member Paul Kent related Lee-Domingue, is that one? Board Member Dawson related no. Board Member Paul Kent questioned which one did he say first? Board President Bradford related LaKesa B, Dr. LaKesa B. Dixon. Board Member Paul Kent related okay and LaBatt? Board President Bradford related yes, sir Arronza LaBatt.

Board Member Corcoran questioned if he could comment on that? Board President Bradford related yes, sir go ahead. Board Member Corcoran questioned is there any way we can include Johnny Arceneaux on this list? Board Member Dawson related she would like to do the same to, I think an odd number is better. Board Member Corcoran related he is tremendously active in what is going on in the School System and in Economic Development. Board President Bradford

Board Member Corcoran related he means he is on the up and up, is what I am saying. Board President Bradford questioned is he wanted to make a motion to that affect to add that person?

Item 6. Board President Bradford turned the floor over to Dr. Lewis.

Mayor Coleman asked that the item (road closure) be added to the agenda.

Dr. Lewis related Item 6. on the agenda deals with the 2.75 factor lawsuit. We recently received some information from Mr. Bob Hammonds’ Office in reference to this matter is going to court sometime next week and School Districts need to sign a Resolution. However, we contact Mr. Hammonds Office and explained that our Board here previously passed a Resolution for 2012/2013 SY, because we did not receive the additional 2.75 factor in our MFP and we also completed one for the 2013/2014 SY. So after we put this item on the agenda and after speaking with Mr. Hammonds, even though we received the information at this time he said because we have completed both Resolutions that there is no additional action to be taken by East Feliciana and that we are in the lawsuit that covers the 2012/2013 SY and the 2013/2014 SY. He noted just to remind everyone, if these two lawsuits are favorable for us, what is going to happen the 2.75 and that is the costs of living factor that was supposed to be added during that year and it was not, if we are successful we would end up getting the 2.75 that should have been allocated for East Feliciana for the 2012/2013 SY as well as the 2013/2014 SY. On the legal side, as far as the legal fees of up to 10%, that the Lawyers will receive. However, if we are not victorious in these two (2) lawsuits, then the District will not have to pay anything. So if we indeed get pay out, we know that we will receive an additional amount for those two (2) School Years minus up to 10% which will be the legal fees.

NEW BUSINESS DISCUSSION: A presentation was provided by Nancy Vinci and Janice Wynn on the updates to the Julius Freyhan Foundation. Julius Freyhan Foundation Presentation: Julius Freyhan Foundation was formed in 1985 to raise funds to renovate the building. The project was idled until 7 years ago and when Julius Freyhan's granddaughter left the foundation $400,000. Freyhan was a Jewish immigrant to New Orleans who became the owner of an opera house, a store, and other ventures in St. Francisville. In the early 1900s, the Jewish community was looking for a place to worship and they came to Turner Hill and built Temple Sinai. The building served as the first central school for West Feliciana Parish. It is a beautiful building and burned two years after it was built. It is approximately 15,000 square feet and has pressed-in ceilings, bead board arches and wainscoting. When the foundation was revitalized, it was determined to become an arts and cultural center. Other donations have come from Pennington, Entergy, etc. Active fundraising events included the Walker Percy weekend, which raised $30,000. Preliminary plans were drawn up and fundraising activities are underway. The project has three phases; the Freyhan building is phase II. The removal of the School Board building, paving a parking lot and adding an amphitheater will all take place in the third phase. In 2014, the movie Bonnie and Clyde was filmed in the building, and it was used

The auditorium can seat 150 individual. The amphitheater will be able to support 1500. a) Joint Marketing Committee: The Joint Marketing Committee is busy working on creating 6 3' by 10' banners to be used as marketing tools not only for the multitude of events in the Parish during the month of October (Warrior Dash, Angola Rodeos, Yellow Leaf Festival and Vets Fest), but also for the coming years. These banners will be posted in a consecutive fashion, and serve the purpose of planting the seed of possibility for Baton Rouge residents. b) Tourism Commission Presentation: The Tourism Commission is moving forward with the new funding structure and marketing plan. Had the first charet several weeks ago focused on brainstorming ways to better capture the day traveller. Performed SWOT analysis. Will host a total of four charet meetings; Will compile all the feedback from each charet meeting and will put it all into a marketing plan. Couhig asked to consider opening up the process and the meetings to the public at large. Brashier suggested allowing the public to provide input after the compilation. Couhig felt that this would be too late. St. Francisville was selected by Fodor's as one of the top 20 day trips in the US; Shore excursions of America (follows the American Queen Steamboat) won an award for their Angola Excursion. Warrior Dash- Setting up a tent to distribute information; discount coupon will be provided for St. Francisville businesses.

There are many days when both boats are scheduled to be here. Need to meet with the Parish to figure out how to handle the bus traffic. The smaller boat will seat 50-60 people, and comes in later in the afternoon. The American Queen is the one where we really see the economic impact. They typically eat on the boat, but they also provide bicycle rides. Oliveaux asked how much it cost to print the coupon pamphlet. Walsh replied that it cost $1100. Oliveaux asked if Walsh had considered producing group-specific coupon pamphlets and if they might consider paying for advertising. Couhig asked why the Bluffs is not listed as an attraction on the pamphlet. He said that it was listed as food and accommodations, but not as an attraction. Walsh noted that she can add the golf course as an attraction.

c) Prospect Summary:

Report

We are visiting with several prospects. Relatively small opportunity with the prospects that we met with today, but it will be good for the community. We continue discussions with several prospects, are partnering with BRAC. Oliveaux stated that there were conversations about creating a nonprofit entity to allow for non-disclosure agreements to be held and contracts to be signed. Couhig stated that there is a history of having a private entity but there is resentment about the private nature of the foundation. Oliveaux says that as long as there is a checks and balance. We have made an offer to purchase three pieces of land from the bankruptcy court. Our original offer and their response were pretty far apart. But we are continuing our negotiations. The parish does have funds to purchase that property. On October 20th, the parish council will make a decision on prioritizing our capital outlay requests. Our #1 priority will be something related to the industrial parkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;trying to figure out what it should beâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;roads or sewage system.

Metz mentioned that the paper mill considered selling potable water. Oliveaux stated that they have a way to take water from the Mississippi River and have clarifiers to make the water drinkable. Couhig had conversations with KPAQ about selling their processed water that they have available for fracking; he does not think the owner is as interested in selling assets as the former owner, but they are highly cooperative. Couhig wants the Economic Development Board to host a reception for the new railroad lineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Slaughter, etc. to introduce the owners to the community. Oliveaux noted that the KPAQ plant has access to utilities that they do not use that they could easily turn into a profit. Ferguson was asked what the water system upgrades engineering might cost.

All participants learned a great deal about economic development competitiveness and community development success. Norton stated that the purpose of the retreat was to bring together community leaders, elected officials, members of the Economic Development Board and Tourist Commission to engage in a discussion and learn how to better improve West Feliciana's competitiveness using the C o m m u n i t y Competitiveness Initiative from LED. Participants graded our Parish on the 16 different competitiveness indicators, plotted them on a matrix and used it to determine our top economic development priorities and activities for 2015.

olution to support the development of the Parkview Estates Subdivision.

2015 Economic Development Priorities for West Feliciana Parish include: 1) "Plan the Plan"develop a list of contents needed to be included in the 2015 Economic Development Plan; 2) Identify Infrastructure Needs and Available Sites and Buildings (catalog them and create an online avenue to view and market them); 3) Create an inventory of West Feliciana's Unique Aspects and Selling Points; 4) Determine our Local Competitiveness using the Indicator Guide provided by LED; 5) Improve West Feliciana's promotional collateral, especially our website, for ALL Parish entities; 6) Develop Welcome Packets and "1Stop-Shop" materials for new businesses and residents; 7) Draft an Economic Development Plan for the Parish no later than June 1, 2015; 8) Add existing sites and buildings to LED's "Sites and Buildings Database"; 9) Identify and create a plan to create an LED Certified Site; 10) Create a prospect hosting committee to devise strategies to host potential prospects.

Mr. Vollmer offered a resolution, which was seconded by Mr. Peno, that the West Feliciana Board of Economic Development recommend to the Parish Council approval of the Tucker's subdivision plan for 27 lots on Hwy 966, and expresses its gratitude and appreciation for the Tucker's patience as the proposed plan, with recommended waivers by Planning and Zoning, moves through the approval process. And further, the Board of Economic Development asks the Parish Council to consider that developers (commercial, residential, etc.) are looking for certainty as one of the most important criteria in selecting locations. Review of 2013 Economic Development Plan: First goal of Economic Development Plan in 2013 is to "reduce uncertainty of subjective application of Parish rules". Other goals include: to increase building permits, continue to support the Sports Park, increase rooftops and populations. Several goals of the 2013 Economic Development Plan are still applicable in 2015 and will be included in the updated 2015 Economic Development Plan. Mr. Harvey recommended that developers consider attending and giving a presentation to the Economic Development Board prior to presentations to the Planning and Zoning Commission to help pave the way for positive community support.
