Parish Police Jury Meeting: August 10

By Jim Wilkerson

The Lincoln Parish Police Jury met on August 10 at 7:00 PM in the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center. Parks, Recreation and Tourism Committee member, Glenn Scriber, informed the jury that the archery range currently being built at Lincoln Parish Park should open, on-schedule, on September 1. “This thing is about to become a reality,” Scriber said. The area for the range, previously owned by a local family who donated the land to the park years ago, has already been cleared and fenced off. On Saturday, August 21, a group of contractors will establish and cut off ranges, and signs will be put up the following week. No ribbon-cutting ceremony has been scheduled yet, but the Police Jury, as a whole, expressed a desire to have one – preferably when the temperatures drop. Scriber publicly acknowledged those who put their time and effort into building the range. “This has been a community effort,” he proclaimed, giving thanks to contractors, donors, and the Lincoln Parish Park staff who helped make it possible.
