I think that our beloved Ouachita Parish Police Jury needs to sit their selves down and really take a long hard look at how they are wasting our money. 1st off I applaud the fire department, after having funds in their budge taken away a year and a half ago, they are really trying to keep with in their means of spending. They are trying to get an outdated fleet of vehicles and equipment updated with out any cost to us as a community. As well as trying to protect and serve a community that would not survive without their services or the people who are there for us. I think that the Police Jury needs to spend their time more wisely and figure out how to stop taxing the community for every little thing they feel as though they have a right to pass the buck onto us. Someone should really be monitor these people who definitely do not have a clue as how to run a community. What the fire department has actually learned how to live with in its means and you have a problem with that? Well if so you really should look at your selves and take a lesson in living with in your own means and keep your noses on the end of your own faces and not in the places that it has NO business being in. For goodness sake you still have other things you could be doing as a positive influence for us. Getting rid of all of the crime for one thing would be a good start. Also you should really evaluate what PROTECT AND SERVE means to the community as a whole. You are failing at it miserably.
