NEW ROADS, La. (AP) - The Pointe Coupee Parish Police Jury's Personnel Committee decided to reinstate a part-time job slot in the parish's Utility Department that jurors had purged two years ago.
The committee tackled the issue Thursday after a majority of the Police Jury on Jan. 22 temporarily blocked the employee holding the job from working any more hours after it was discovered she had kept on working after the jury revoked the position in August 2010.
The discussion over how the Personnel Committee should handle the matter touched off another fiery exchange between Jurors Clifford Nelson and Juror Justin Cox.
It was Cox who brought the issue to the Police Jury during the Jan. 22 meeting.
The Police Jury will vote on the committee's recommendation on Feb. 26.
