 New Llano has been using this particular piece of land, with Leesville's permission, for the past 20 years. The land will enable the town to enlarge the park. Owning it will give New Llano the opportunity to alter the land, or build on it, as needed.

Outpatient Medical Centers CEO Carl Winters spoke out in opposition to the possibility of other Federally Qualified Health Centers coming into the Leesville area. At the April 10th meeting, Iberia Comprehensive Community Center presented their hopes and plans for opening a center in the area.

Winters said, if other non-profit medical centers come to the area it would "destabilize jobs" within the establishment, and "create competition for the same federal dollars." He was also concerned that a new health center could take too many of their patients, causing the Outpatient Medical Center to close.
