Highlights from DeSoto Parish Police Jury Meetings in August

The main agenda items for both regular and the special committee DeSoto Parish Police Jury have been the discussion of upcoming administrative changes, with some being immediate and some in that not so distant future. As usual, the Jury is divided who and how the best way to fill these vacancies and how the chain of command will fall in the office.

For about the last two months, Jurors have gone back and forth from meeting to meeting about whether or not to advertise for a new administrator, what the job description would include, and what the organizational chart of the staff should be. Some believe that the Administrator should be at the top, while others think the Human Resource Officer should be over the Administrator.
