The following resolution was introduced by Councilman Jewell and seconded by Councilman Ourso.

     WHEREAS, the Iberville Parish School Board voted to close North Iberville High School in May, 2009 as a school for grades 7 through 12.

     WHEREAS, the closure of North Iberville High School for grades 7 through 12 will create undue hardships for the students and parents as they struggle with the decision to close the school.

     WHEREAS, the Iberville Parish Strategic Plan adopted by the Parish’s governing bodies in 2003 noted that quality public education results from a partnership that involves parents, educators, and business leaders. Open lines of communication between parents, businesses and educational leaders are essential to the success of public education in Iberville Parish.

     WHEREAS, the Iberville Parish Community Master Plan recognized the strengths of the public school system in the northern planning unit as North Iberville Elementary and High School is a quality facility, there is a low student to teacher ration of 18:1 and the school has a good job shadowing program. The Master Plan also recognized some weaknesses of the northern planning unit as having an overall poor performance on standardized tests, low high school graduation rates and poor community perception of the public school system.

     WHEREAS, the northern portion of Iberville Parish has much potential for future growth and development of businesses and residential areas. The presence of a good high school is essential for the northern portion of Iberville Parish to continue with its economic and residential growth. The public schools in the northern portion of Iberville Parish have provided thousands of students with a quality education that ensured their success in college and other businesses and employment opportunities. The future growth and development of the northern portion of Iberville Parish is dependent upon quality public schools in the area for grades 1 through 12.

     WHEREAS, the citizens of the northern portion of Iberville Parish supported the School Board in its efforts to seek additional funding to provide for quality education in all parts of Iberville Parish. The Iberville Parish School System can make North Iberville High School regain its status as excellent institution of secondary education and by working with the parents and businesses; North Iberville High School can become a story of success for public education students.

     WHEREAS, the Iberville Parish Council respectfully requests that the Iberville Parish School Board consider all options available to allow the continued opening of North Iberville High School to help promote the future growth and development of the northern portion of Iberville Parish.

     WHEREAS, the Iberville Parish Council requests that the Council Clerk forward a copy of this resolution to the Iberville Parish School Board.

     The above resolution was duly adopted in regular session this 19th day of May, 2009 by the following vote on roll call;

YEAS: Taylor, Ourso, Scott, Reeves, Butler, Oubre, Bradford, Vallet, Jewell, Roy.

Notice

Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“ELL”), an electric public utility having facilities to provide retail electric service to residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental customers in forty-six Parishes of the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC” or the “Commission”), pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(3) of the Louisiana Constitution and Title 45, Section 1163.1 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, on March 15, 2010, pursuant to the LPSC Financing Order dated April 16, 2008, an adjustment to the Financed Storm Cost Rider (“Rider FSC”) and an adjustment to the Storm Cost Offset Rider (“Rider SCO”) that will go into effect the first billing cycle of April 2010 (March 31). 

        In conjunction with Act 55 of the Louisiana Legislature’s Regular Session of 2007, LPSC Order U-29203-F authorized the following:  (1) approval and authorization for the LURC to finance, through the issuance of “system restoration bonds” by the Louisiana Public Facilities Authority (the “LPFA”), a contribution to ELL’s capital; (2) approval to create system restoration property in favor solely of the Corporation, including the right to impose and collect system restoration charges sufficient to pay the system restoration bonds and associated financing costs; and (3) approval of a tariff to implement the system restoration charges on behalf of the Corporation.  Further, the Corporation and ELL received Commission authorization for the issuance of system restoration bonds in one or more series in an aggregate principal amount equal to the sum of: (a) $545,000,000 of system restoration costs, plus (b) the costs of funding storm damage reserves in the amount of $152,000,000 in a restricted escrow account, plus (c) issuance costs of $9,300,000.  When rounded, these components resulted in a total issuance of $687,700,000. 

        To finance these costs, the Co-Applicants implemented Rider FSC Rates the first billing cycle of August 2008.  The FSC Rates are adjusted at least semi-annually and will continue in effect until all system restoration bonds have been paid in full and all financing costs of the system restoration bonds shall have been recovered in full.  Consistent with the LPSC ’s determination in Order Nos. U-29203-B and U-29203-G, the calculation of the FSC Rates will apply to all rate classes, including the Special Contracted Rate customers and will be nonbypassable, which means that, with limited exception, all existing and future LPSC-jurisdictional ELL customers will be responsible for these charges. 

        Any insurance proceeds or governmental grants or aid reflecting permanent recovery of system restoration costs received after issuance of the Financing Order, together with any interest earnings associated with those insurance proceeds or governmental grants or aid reflecting permanent recovery of system restoration costs received after the issuance of the Financing Order will be returned to customers of ELL through Rider SCO.  Other adjustments required to compensate for certain costs or benefits relating to elements other than those relating to the financing transaction, including accumulated deferred income taxes and other savings pursuant to Act 55 Financing as provided for in Order U-29203-G, will be reflected in the Rider SCO.  Ongoing, Rider SCO will be adjusted annually. 

        Using the method of allocation and rate design approved by the LPSC, the combined effect for ELL customers of the adjustments to Rider FSC and Rider SCO will be the following:  A bill for Residential Service for 1,000 kWh would increase $0.76 from $99.45 to $100.21.  A bill for Small General Service for 50 kW and 12,500 kWh would increase $11.31 from $1,377.41 to $1,388.72.  A bill for Large General Service for 500 kW and 225,000 kWh would increase $124.32 from $19,086.64 to $19,210.96.

Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“ELL”), an electric public utility having facilities to provide retail electric service to residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental customers in forty-six Parishes of the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC” or the “Commission”), pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(3) of the Louisiana Constitution and Title 45, Section 1163.1 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, on March 15, 2010, pursuant to the LPSC Financing Order dated April 16, 2008, an adjustment to the Financed Storm Cost Rider (“Rider FSC”) and an adjustment to the Storm Cost Offset Rider (“Rider SCO”) that will go into effect the first billing cycle of April 2010 (March 31). 

        In conjunction with Act 55 of the Louisiana Legislature’s Regular Session of 2007, LPSC Order U-29203-F authorized the following:  (1) approval and authorization for the LURC to finance, through the issuance of “system restoration bonds” by the Louisiana Public Facilities Authority (the “LPFA”), a contribution to ELL’s capital; (2) approval to create system restoration property in favor solely of the Corporation, including the right to impose and collect system restoration charges sufficient to pay the system restoration bonds and associated financing costs; and (3) approval of a tariff to implement the system restoration charges on behalf of the Corporation.  Further, the Corporation and ELL received Commission authorization for the issuance of system restoration bonds in one or more series in an aggregate principal amount equal to the sum of: (a) $545,000,000 of system restoration costs, plus (b) the costs of funding storm damage reserves in the amount of $152,000,000 in a restricted escrow account, plus (c) issuance costs of $9,300,000.  When rounded, these components resulted in a total issuance of $687,700,000. 

        To finance these costs, the Co-Applicants implemented Rider FSC Rates the first billing cycle of August 2008.  The FSC Rates are adjusted at least semi-annually and will continue in effect until all system restoration bonds have been paid in full and all financing costs of the system restoration bonds shall have been recovered in full.  Consistent with the LPSC ’s determination in Order Nos. U-29203-B and U-29203-G, the calculation of the FSC Rates will apply to all rate classes, including the Special Contracted Rate customers and will be nonbypassable, which means that, with limited exception, all existing and future LPSC-jurisdictional ELL customers will be responsible for these charges. 

        Any insurance proceeds or governmental grants or aid reflecting permanent recovery of system restoration costs received after issuance of the Financing Order, together with any interest earnings associated with those insurance proceeds or governmental grants or aid reflecting permanent recovery of system restoration costs received after the issuance of the Financing Order will be returned to customers of ELL through Rider SCO.  Other adjustments required to compensate for certain costs or benefits relating to elements other than those relating to the financing transaction, including accumulated deferred income taxes and other savings pursuant to Act 55 Financing as provided for in Order U-29203-G, will be reflected in the Rider SCO.  Ongoing, Rider SCO will be adjusted annually. 

        Using the method of allocation and rate design approved by the LPSC, the combined effect for ELL customers of the adjustments to Rider FSC and Rider SCO will be the following:  A bill for Residential Service for 1,000 kWh would increase $0.76 from $99.45 to $100.21.  A bill for Small General Service for 50 kW and 12,500 kWh would increase $11.31 from $1,377.41 to $1,388.72.  A bill for Large General Service for 500 kW and 225,000 kWh would increase $124.32 from $19,086.64 to $19,210.96.
