Parish President Joey Durel will have to appoint another person to the Charter Comission. Yesterday he announced Mike Hefner would be filling the role after Councilman Randy Menard asked to be removed. The problem is Hefner is an elected official and can't serve on the commission. The commission will be looking over the charter, making recommendations on any amendments. They could suggest to do away with the charter all together. They do not make the decision, rather advise the council to bring it to a vote before the people. All members of the commission will be sworn in July 20th.
