The village of Choudrant has finally started to see some visible signs of the Interstate service road project that has been in the works for several years now.
During the village’s Monday night regular meeting, Mayor Bill Sanderson said he had heard from the engineers, and that stakes had been put out to mark where the approximately 5,000-foot roadway will be.
Due to the extremely dry conditions in certain parishes within the state, State Fire Marshal H. “Butch” Browning and Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain have issued a cease and desist order for all private burning, pursuant to authority under R.S. 40:1563.
Private burning shall only be allowed by permission of the local fire department or local government.
