Edwin Otis Edgerton III has announced his bid for the seat of the Lincoln Parish Tax Assessor.
Edgerton said his real estate experience has created an advantage in serving the people of Lincoln Parish with their assessment concerns.

Ruston’s Planning and Zoning Commission is asking the Board of Aldermen to change the future land use for a portion of Tech Drive so that it matches the designation already on the other side of the street.
The commission voted unanimously on Monday to recommend the west side of Tech Drive from West California Avenue to West Barnett Springs Road be re-designated from low- and high-density residential to core district.
The east side of Tech Drive is already tagged core district. Core districts are generally a combination of residential with some allowable commercial uses.
