Ascension Council meetings going virtual
Ascension Parish Council Chairwoman Teri Casso announced today that beginning with the Thursday August 6 Council meeting, and until further notice, all meetings of the Ascension Parish Council and all Committee meetings will be by video teleconference only. This move is being made in an attempt to counter the recent spike in the number of coronavirus infections and COVID-19 cases.
She also stated that the Council Secretary’s office is closed to the public, and that staff is working from home.
All meeting agendas and supporting documents are published on the parish website: www.ascensionparish.net.

John Bel Edwards’ Proclamation Number 75 JBE 2020: Section 3 Emergency Suspensions: Item I: Any state department or agency or political subdivision is hereby granted authority to further extend any non-essential deadline for a period of no longer than 30 days if deemed necessary to respond to the threat of COVID-19.
