To dial into the meeting, call (425)436-6302, The PIN is 780273. The ordinance would also authorize the parish president to sign and execute documents.

The total cost for the two servitude acquisitions and other necessary items is estimated to be no more than $10,500. The property will be appraised to determine fair market value. While the Cane River Waterway Commission (CRWC) has agreed to pay the increased contract price of $2,149,685, that includes four change orders, the commissioners decided at the July 20 meeting that its funding commitment was limited to the construction contract amount.
