|Parish did not save money with free dumpster program, councilman says
December 20, 2013 at 9:20 am
I read the recent Herald-Guide article “Attorney General closes the lid on Parish’s free dumpster program” to which I feel I have the obligation to reply and to clarify for the citizens some of what was reported.

|St. Charles businesses don’t remove sales tax during holiday
August 09, 2013 at 11:01 am
I assume that the state of Louisiana and St. Charles Parish instituted the sales tax holidays to provide an opportunity for the residents of the state and parish to purchase items and save the normal taxes paid on said purchases, thereby stimulating the economy and providing savings to the residents. This holiday takes place every year on the first Friday and Saturday of August. All items for personal use should be sales tax free with the exceptions of licensed vehicles, food prepared at a restaurant and some services and rentals.

September 14, 2012 at 9:45 am
As you may know there are several budget bills attempting to move across the Congressional floor that adversely affects every member of the National Guard and Reserve.

|Vote for hospital bond will cause further debt
April 05, 2012 at 9:00 am
Once again, in less than a year, the Administrator and operators of our St. Charles Parish Hospital are asking the good folks of St. Charles Parish to give them more money to expand the hospital. Nothing has changed, except for their plan on how they will access your taxes.
