CLINTON, La. (AP) - In an effort to keep meetings more transparent for the public and to keep all police jurors involved, the East Feliciana Police Jury adopted general guidelines Monday for the parish's six committees.
The Advocate reports the recommendations came from the governing body's Executive Committee, chaired by jury President Louis Kent. The guidelines include notifying jurors of all committee meetings, recording all meetings and providing a synopsis of the committees' recommendations to jurors at the following regular meeting.
The guidelines also name the parish manager as the single point of contact for jurors. Kent said an attorney general's opinion says an individual juror does not have the authority to supervise or direct jury personnel in their duties.
