ST. FRANCISVILLE — The chairman of the West Feliciana Parish Home Rule Charter Commission said public comment will be accepted Monday on a proposed plan to change the parish form of government.
The commission will meet at 6 p.m. in the Police Jury meeting room of the Courthouse Annex, Chairman Jack Hanemann said.
“This will be the last opportunity for the public to make comments before the document is finally approved by the commission, Hanemann said, adding that the document would be presented to the Police Jury later this month.
The Police Jury will publish the document and call an election for parish voters to approve or disapprove of the plan of government.
If the document is approved Monday night, the commission will consider officially disbanding and declaring that its task is completed, according to the agenda.
The proposed charter would change the seven-member Police Jury to a five-member Parish Council and a parish president, if voters approve it.
Four of the council members would be elected from single-member districts, and the fifth would be elected in parishwide balloting.
The seven jurors elected last year would serve their full terms, through 2015.
