The Coliseum.....again
Just passing thru

Fort Necessity, LA

#1 Jul 17, 2014
It seems Police Jury prez Joe Bishop proposed remodelling the Coliseum, got PJ approval, passed a tax, picked the wrong architect, is collecting construction money from us, all the while forgetting to get permission from the city to do anything.
More proof that Rapides Parish operates like a third world banana republic.
Good old boy Roy knew all along that nothing could proceed without city and Parish governments agreeing yet he sat back and watched.
Roy, in essence told the police jury to go ahead and remodel......but not on the city of Alex. parking lot.
Meanwhile we (taxpayers) continue to pay a $23 million tax for a project whose cost goes up every day while our governing authorities fight among themselves.
Flash forward a couple of years: "The Town Talk reports the now $50 million remodel (lipstick on a pig) of the coliseum is complete. The Police Jury hopes a promoter will book somebody, anybody, to entertain the taxpayers who fell for the false promises that the coliseum would prosper."
Yup, they got us again!
Coming soon: City of Alex needs to remodel the city's power plant on upper 3rd so that it can sit idle another 25 years.
