Residents in one area of the parish will soon be able to sleep a little sounder at night.
That’s because thanks to Louisiana’s Operation Save a Life Program, residents on Water Tank Road will soon have smoke alarms installed in their homes by the Ruston Fire Department for free.
Nancy Wilson, police juror for the area, recognized the need for smoke alarms approximately four months ago and felt compelled to use her position to do something about it.
Residents are invited to nominate someone 85 years or older from the parishes of Ouachita, Union, Lincoln or Jackson who has made significant contributions in the field of education, and who taught in the elementary or secondary school system prior to the national mandate for public school integration.
The Lincoln Parish Police Jury will convene for its first meeting of 2013 on Tuesday.
During the regular full jury meeting at 7 p.m., jurors are scheduled to elect their 2013 officers and select an administrator.
Juror Theresa Wyatt currently serves as jury president, and Juror David Hammons is vice-president. Courtney Hall is the parish administrator.
Also during the meeting, jurors will be asked to confirm the following board appointments:
• F.J. Armond to Greater Ward One Waterworks District
• Richard Aillet to the Lincoln Parish Fire Protection District
