PROCEEDINGS
CITY COUNCIL
May 8, 2017,
DeQuincy, LA
The city council of the city of DeQuincy met in regular session on the above date in the city hall council chambers located at 300 Holly Street, DeQuincy, Louisiana, with the following members present: Ronda Jacobs, Judy Landry, and Denise Maddox and Andrea Coleman. Absent: Mark Peloquin
Council Chairman Denise Maddox called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m. Mayor Lawrence Henagan gave the invocation and Douglas Cox led the pledge of allegiance.
Motion was made by Andrea Coleman and seconded by Judy Landry to approve the April 10, 2017 regular session minutes. Without objection, the motion carried.
Valecia Royer, CPA, presented the finance report for the City of DeQuincy. As of April 30, 2017, the total revenue is $2,459,112.00 and the total expenses are $1,848,243.00. This is within the five percent (5%) budget guidelines, which we expect at this point of the year. As we get closer to the end of the year, we will more than likely need to amend to be within that five percent (5%) guideline.
Fire Chief Johnny Copeland reported there were five (5) runs for the month of April 2017.
Chief Suchanek gave the police report. The bonds and fines totaled $18,262.00 for the month of
April 2017.
Eddy Dahlquist gave the public works report. Mr. Dahlquist reported they had two (2) new sewer taps, and one (1) new gas service. A pallet of cold mix was received and the crew has been filling potholes, and will fill more this week. The machine used to pick up limbs has been in the shop for a while but the crew will take the fork- lift out this week and try to pick up as many limb piles as possible.

COUNCIL CONCERNS
Ronda Jacobs asked the Chief to red tag a house on Perkins Street that she has received several complaints on and advised Eddy of a missing stop sign on Hwy. 389 and Boise Street. Further, Ronda asked Mayor Henagan for the status on a bid for the Boise street right of way and whether or not a trash bash had been scheduled.
Mark Peloquin asked Eddy about the procedure for putting in culverts in front of private residences. Live Oak Street flooded during the last big rain and a resident asked if having larger culverts would help prevent future flooding. Mark further advised the council that the owners of the mobile home on Front Street were putting up skirting, as the city requested, and the owner of the two houses in his district, that had been previously mentioned concerning condemnation, are willing to work with the city to do whatever necessary to avoid the condemnation process.
Andrea Coleman asked the constituents in her district, present at this meeting, to get pictures together that were taken within the past several months showing raw sewage in the streets during hard rains. She also asked that they write down any comments or complaints they have regarding the sewer situation in her district.
Judy Landry asked what people are supposed to do with debris they have from house renovations/remodeling. The garbage men will not pick it up and neither will the city. The Mayor suggested that the homeowners rent a large dumpster if they are doing big jobs.
Denise Maddox had no concerns that have not already been addressed.
Judy Landry made a motion to adjourn and Ronda Jacobs seconded the motion.
