            Alderman Badeaux made a motion, seconded by Alderman Gantt and unanimously approved to select Kathleen Beard as auditor for 2009.

 

            More information is needed from the engineers on the closing of the old water well, so this matter was tabled until a later meeting.

 

            Mayor Badeaux reported that some of the blighted properties around Rosedale have been cleaned, but some of the more serious ones have not.  He suggested that legal action may need to be taken in order to get the property owners to clean up these properties.  Alderman Alexander made a motion, seconded by Alderman Badeaux and unanimously approved to authorize the Mayor to take the necessary steps to have property owners clean their blighted property, including legal action.

 

            Mayor Badeaux discussed the matter of repairing the old historical graves in the cemetery.  It was suggested that estimates for repairs be submitted to the Board before a decision is made to restore the graves.

            Public Works Director Kim Patin reported that a few back flow preventers were installed, however, according to the La. Rural Water Association, these preventers are not approved for farm use, only residential.  The preventer used for farms will cost $80.00 each.  With the installation of the new digital meters about to begin, Mr. Patin reported that the cost of the new meters and meter boxes has increased.  Alderman Badeaux introduced an Ordinance to set the price of a meter for new service at $375.00 and the price of a replacement meter box at $30.00.  Mr. Patin further suggested that a fill station be installed for trucks filling tanks instead of using the fire hydrants.  Mr. Patin also reported that the old water storage tank needs to be disposed of.  Fire Chief Mike Hughes stated that the Fire Department could use it for hose testing.  Mr. Patin further reported that he received two quotes for cleaning culverts in Rosedale, the first from DPE at a cost of $2,250.00 per day and the seconded from Video Pipe at a cost of $30,000.00 to clean all culverts in the town.  Mr. Patin researched the alternative and has priced a pump with tank and hose at a cost of less than $10,000.00.  It was decided to table this matter until next month.  Alderman Badeaux made a motion, seconded by Alderman Alexander and unanimously approved to accept the Maintenance Department’s report.

 

            In the Mayor’s Report, Mayor Badeaux reported that he received notice that the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security has approved the drainage project for Hurdle Road.  FEMA’s approval is still needed.  Mayor Badeaux further reported that the parish is to receive approximately $221,000.00 for energy saving projects and Rosedale’s disbursed amount should be approximately $20,000.00.  Approximately $9,000.00 will be earmarked for the lighting project and the remainder will be used toward purchasing a natural gas generator to be shared by the Town Hall and Fire Station.  Alderman Gantt made a motion, seconded by Alderman Alexander and unanimously approved to adopt a resolution authorizing John Chumba to proceed in obtaining Rosedale’s portion of the Natural Resources Grant for the lighting project in the Town Hall and other buildings which is projected to be approximately $9,000.00.  Alderman Gantt made a motion, seconded by Alderman Alexander and unanimously approved to obtain the $20,000.00 due Rosedale from the parish’s award of approximately $221,000.00 from GOSEP.  Alderman Badeaux made a motion, seconded by Alderman Alexander and unanimously approved to accept the Mayor’s Report.

 

            Attorney Jerry Guillot presented to the Mayor and Board the Resolution to be presented to the family of K Thomas.    Alderman Gantt made a motion, seconded by Alderman Alexander and unanimously approved to accept the Attorney’s Report.
