There was no Parish Council meeting Monday evening, Dec. 16, as there was no quorum. Only Council members Pasty Hoover and Chris Paige were in attendance and Paige chastised his colleagues who couldn’t bother to show up (Doug de Graffenried, Russell Rachal and Rodney Bedgood). These three are outgoing Council members. Newly elected Parish President John Richmond said he is optimistic about the future and the new members coming onto the Council. The next meeting will be held on January 13. All agenda items will be pushed off onto this first Council meeting in 2020 for the new administration to take care of.
