Parish Council sets new meeting time

Staff reports

Beginning in November, all regular Parish Council meetings will start at 6 p.m., according to Parish Council Chairman Pat Bell.

The time change brings the council meetings, which now begin at 7 p.m., into the same time slot as most parish committee meetings that typically start at 6 p.m.

Both council meetings in October will still be held at 7 p.m.; Oct. 1 at the Ascension Parish Courthouse in Donaldsonville and Oct. 15 at the Ascension Courthouse East in Gonzales.

The time change goes into effect at the Nov. 5 meeting in Donaldsonville.

The time change won’t affect television broadcasts of the meetings, except for the new time.

Meetings will continue to be broadcast live on Ascension Channel 21, the governmental access cable channel.
