St. Landry council votes against security cameras

OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) – The St. Landry Parish Council has decided to reverse an earlier decision to install security cameras in the Old City Market offices of the council clerks and attorney.

Council Chairman Hurlin Dupre told The Advocate the security cameras aren't needed in the clerk's offices.

Councilman Jerry Red Jr. said the decision to install the cameras came after one of the clerks told the council items on her desk had been moved around after working hours.

Councilman Leon Robinson said he was against installing the cameras because none of the council clerks had requested the office cameras.

The council did adopted Tuesday a 15-year, $65 million bond issue that will use an additional 2 percent sales tax in the parish's unincorporated areas to finance parish-wide road maintenance and construction.
