The Vernon Parish Police Jury will be getting rid of some equipment.

Based on a recommendation from the Equipment Committee, three pieces of equipment, including a couple of pick up trucks, will be sold soon.

Equipment Committee chairman Kenny Haymon, who represents District 12, reported to the full panel that a 2008 AM General from District 3 will be sold for about $10,000, while two pick-up trucks — a 1995 GMC from District 3 and a 2001 Dodge from Districts 10, 11 and 12 — have been declared as surplus items and will be up for sale at an auction.

Additionally, the Equipment Committee will be purchasing a 2005 Ford F-350 1-ton flatbed truck from Quality Outdoor Products in the amount of $6,495.

District 7 representative Charnel Bailey, who serves as the chairman of the Permit and Claims Committee, announced his committee's support of issuing a liquor license to TJ's Bar, located at 14250 Lake Charles Highway in Leesville.

TJ's Bar was issued a Class A license, which allows the business to sell beverages of both high and low alcohol content at the place of business.

Several other committees had their recommendations approved by the full board at recent police jury meeting.

The Economic Development and Planning Committee had their recommendation of a subdivision plat for the Cypress Cove Subdivision in District 3 approved. Since the subdivision is located along Anacoco Lake, elevation certificates may be requested before anyone can begin construction.

The Finance Committee was approved to pay for the stage for the upcoming Mayfest celebration, while an invoice in the amount of $1,270 from Neil Erwin Law Firm for the Fort Polk Growth Management Infrastructure Project was also authorized to be paid.

Finally, the board announced it will continue to maintain a part of Lewis Perkins Road, while the Town of New Llano will take care of the remainder of the road as it recently annexed that area of District 4, Ward 4 into its corporated limits.
