                     Mr. Phillip Gouaux
                     Mr. Brent Callais

       ABSENT:       None


       The invocation was led by Mr. Mark Atzenhoffer. The Council then recited the Pledge of
Allegiance led by Mr. Tyrone Williams.


                     APPROVAL OF COUNCIL MINUTES
        The first item (1) on the agenda was a motion to accept the minutes of the November 27,
2007 Regular Session meeting. A motion was offered by Mr. Atzenhoffer, seconded by Mr.
Callais, and carried by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.

        Mr. Toups said that it was coming down to the last meeting for some of the Councilmen, he
told them that he had enjoyed serving with them and wished Mr. Matherne, Mr. Williams, Mr.
Atzenhoffer, and Mr. Callais luck. He then presented a plaque to the Council Chairman for 2007,

                                                                                               1

LPC           DECEMBER 11, 2007             REGULAR SESSION
             PUBLIC WISHING TO ADDRESS THE COUNCIL
         The next item on the agenda was the Public to address the Council. Mr. Joe Fertitta, Parkside
Drive in Thibodaux, introduced himself as Councilman Elect for District 4. He stated his personal
feelings to the Council in regards to the resolutions (to be discussed later on the current Agenda)
concerning the investigations of the Legislative Auditor; wishing out of courtesy for the incoming
Council that they would not do so, saying that it was a “black eye” for the Parish. Mr. Fertitta said
that the Parish has enough controversy, in that they had a system, requesting that they let it work,
saying that there was no reason to bring all of it into investigation. He said that he did not want to
take office with this issue hanging over their heads, saying that they should make Lafourche Parish
the best Parish they can and start off with a clean slate.
         Mr. Toups asked Mr. Fertitta which resolution he was referring to; with Mr. Fertitta replying
that he was talking about all of the investigations. Mr. Fertitta reiterated that they have a system and
then requested that they let the Legislative Auditor do his work. He asked why they should bring in
all of the other people, mentioning a forensic investigation; further explaining that it would tie up the
Finance department for months, in that the Finance Department would not have the resources to do
the forensic report and also operate the Parish. Mr. Toups then said that he felt that if they did not
do it, with all the publicity it had received, that it would look like they were trying to hide
something. Mr. Fertitta stated that the Auditors had said that there was no reason to investigate,
which they usually say at the end of an Audit; that they were not hiding anything because they have
a Legislative Auditor doing their job, to let them investigate and let it go to the Legislative Counsel.

       Chairman Lasseigne recognized several people in attendance of the meeting, that being the
Mayor of Golden Meadow, Mr. Joey Bouziga; Councilman Elect, Mr. Rodney Doucet, District 8,
Councilman Elect, Mr. Matt Matherne, District 5; Councilman Elect, Mr. Joe Fertitta, District 4;
Councilman Elect, Mr. Louis Richard, District 3; and a former Councilman from District 2, Mr.
Charles Banta.

       Mr. Toups asked for an explanation of this amendment. Mr. Callais explained that the
amendment increased the $1.5 million that was proposed in the Budget for streets in Golden
Meadow to $2 million, from Road Sales Tax District 2; that the proposed $1 million for the Airport
Corridor Project was decreased to $100,000, for the engineering study; and then transferred $1
million from Road Sales Tax District 2 Fund Balance for the East 94th Extension and Bayou
Raphael Project in 2008.
       The veto of amendment #6 was overridden by a vote of (8) yeas and (1) nay, that being of
Mr. Gouaux.

              Increase the Fund Balance Fund #106 by                $67,060

        Mr. Callais explained that the amendment was to take out salaries, wages, and benefits for an
employee to oversee the road projects, in that most of the Councilmen agreed that they hired and pay
engineers 10 – 15% to do so, and that the Tax Call did not have anything in it about employees. He
further stated that this was done for amendment #7 and also for #8.
        The veto of amendment #7 was overridden by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.

                                                                                                   3

       e.)    AMENDMENT #9 – BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE:

              Decrease the Fund Balance of Fund 102 by                         $300,000

              Increase Capital Outlay Fund 299 by                              $300,000

        Mr. Callais explained that the amendment was because $330,000 was a rollover from two
years ago to do the new Galliano Annex in the old Wal-Mart building, which is now the new South
Lafourche Library; so they had taken $300,000 out of the Fund Balance, that they had received bids
that were right at $550,000 which would allow them to complete the project of having a new annex
in Galliano for the lower part of the Parish.
        The veto of amendment #9 was overridden by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.

       f.)    AMENDMENT #10 – ROAD SALES TAX DISTRICT A:

        Mr. Callais explained that this amendment was going to take away the inflatable levees and
the road grader out of paying for it from the Road Sales Tax District Funds, saying that it can still be
funded through other sources. Mr. Toups asked for clarification, if they would vote against it that
they would get the inflatable levees and the road grader, or not. Mr. Callais explained that it was
taking it out of the Capital Budget by having the Road Sales Tax Districts paying for it, in that the
Administration can come back with a Supplemental Appropriation to take it out of Royalties or
wherever to get it done. Mr. Toups then asked if that would be legal to do so; with Mr. Callais
replying that whatever was paid for with RSTD#2 monies had to stay in that District and whatever
was paid for with Consolidated District A monies would have to stay in that District. Mr. Callais
said that it would be breaking the tax call for any equipment to be used in any other District from
which it was paid from. He stated that he believed the items were needed, just not coming out of
Road Sales Tax Funds.
        The veto of amendment #11 was overridden by a vote of (8) yeas and (1) nay, that being of
Mr. Gouaux.

       h.)      AMENDMENT #12 – CIVIL SERVICE DEPARTMENT:
                Increase General Fund 001, Civil Service, Salaries and Wages by $ 20,000
                Increase General Fund 001, Civil Service, Employee Benefits by $ 5,000
                Decrease General Fund 001, Fund Balance by                        $ 25,000
        Chairman Lasseigne explained that this amendment was to put adequate funding for the Civil
Service Director and/or any additional employees because it was not in there, further saying that the
amendment would not set her salary, does not increase it or change anything, in that it just put it in
there for the Civil Service Board to make the recommendation if they so choose.
        The veto of amendment #12 was overridden by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.

       i.)     AMENDMENT #13 - LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT:
               Increase General Fund 001, Legislative, Salaries and Wages by     $10,000
               Increase General Fund 001, Professional Services Audit            $10,000

               Decrease General Fund 001, Fund Balance by                        $40,000
       Chairman Lasseigne explained that this amendment puts money in so the Council Clerk’s
salary can be reached as set by Ordinance in the budget, increases the amount for the audit by
$10,000 and adds a miscellaneous account for $20,000. He said that the miscellaneous account
would be appropriate so that the next Council would have the funds available, since the Council can
not make Supplemental Appropriations. Chairman Lasseigne then referred to page 28 of the Home
Rule Charter, stating that the Parish President shall have no power to line item veto expenses for
auditing, which was indeed done.
       The veto of amendment #13 was overridden by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.

                Decrease the Fund Balance of the Royalty Fund 108 by               $80,000
                Increase the Transfer Out fm Fund 108 to Fund 299 by               $80,000
                Create the following projects:

                                Golden Meadow Park Pavilion Repair                 $50,000
                                Cut Off Pavilion Repair                            $30,000
        Mr. Lorraine explained that this amendment sets $50,000 aside for repairs to the Golden
Meadow Park Pavilion and that it did not mean that they would use the whole amount. He then said
that the Parish had borrowed money to Recreation District #3 so they can finish a project and then
asked Mayor Bouziga if it was in their budget to pay it back. Mayor Bouziga stated that the amount
owed was $40,518 and that it was indeed in their budget to pay it back at the beginning of the year.
Mr. Lorraine asked if the project was done for less if they would work with the Council on that; with
Mayor Bouziga responding that they would definitely work with the Council. Mayor Bouziga
explained that the Town was looking into taking the roof off themselves to try to save some money,
in that he was asking that the Parish pay to replace it. Mr. Lorraine then asked Mayor Bouziga how
things were handled when people wanted to reserve the Pavilion, asking if he was right in saying that
people throughout the Parish could do so. Mayor Bouziga explained that he was correct; and that
they do not charge non profit organizations or for fundraisers. He said that the Pavilion was open to
everybody on a daily basis. Mr. Toups asked if they fund this, would somebody from Lockport be
able to have a benefit free of charge. Mayor Bouziga replied as yes, and that it can be a benefit from
anywhere if it was to raise money to help someone.
        The veto of amendment #14 was overridden by a vote of (8) yeas, (0) nays, and (1)
abstention, that being of Mr. Callais.

                                         DISCUSSION
         The next item (3) on the agenda was a discussion regarding the Legislative Audit. Mr.
Atzenhoffer stated that this would be discussed during the resolutions presented later on the Agenda.
         The next item (4) on the agenda was a discussion requesting the Administration to check
into the possibility of installing a channel marker light in Lake Des Allemands from the road
lighting fund. Mr. Delatte expressed that the Road Lighting Fund was for road lighting and for
public safety, that he presumed that marking the Channel would fall under the category of public
safety. He said that if they can light up walking tracks, baseball fields, and so forth that they might
be able to request this. Mr. Delatte stated that he had received a letter from the Eighth Coast Guard
District, which a resolution had been sent to them along with the Wildlife and Fisheries requesting
their help or for them to install the lights. He said that according to what he received on October
22nd, that it appears that they would not fund it or not interested in doing so, and that they would
recommend that the Parish look to another source of funding. Mr. Delatte mentioned that he would
like for the Administration to look into the possibility, if the Road Lighting Tax Call does say public
safety, if that would fit into that particular category, even if it does not have anything to do with a
highway, that it would certainly have something to do with public safety. He said that he had done
some research and that he did not find any channel marker lights that were paid for by the Parish, or
installed by the Parish. Mr. Delatte said that he was told that the original marker that was in Lake
Des Allemands, for probably twenty something years, that was installed many, many years ago was
in fact installed by the Parish, but it would be almost impossible in finding that sort of record, which
was something done 30 or 40 years ago. He reiterated that he would like the Administration to see
what they can come up with.
                                                                                                      6

for the Parish. He explained that they have a right-of-way, a road right-of-way, that they have a
retention pond, and that they have the use of their pumps. Mr. Delatte stated that it took about 8
months to put this together, but it was good for the Parish, and that he approves it.

responsible; asking why were they in a hurry for the road to be accepted. President Randolph replied

        The next item (34) on the agenda was a resolution authorizing the Department of Public
Works to purchase two (2) John Deere Excavators through State Bid from Doggett Machinery
Services. A motion was offered by Mr. Atzenhoffer and seconded by Mr. Delatte.
        Mr. Matt Matherne questioned the Council; he stated that he did not quite understand what
the resolution was stating. He asked if the John Deere excavators were being bought from the State
or where they going to go out on bids for them. Mr. Atzenhoffer explained that they were going to
be purchased from State’s Bid; the purchase would be from an independent company that has put out
a State Bid for a year, which was the price that anybody in the State could purchase them. He then
said that was what the Department of Public Works has requested. Mr. Matt Matherne then asked
again if they were being purchased from the State; with Mr. Atzenhoffer clarifying that they were
purchasing them from Doggett Machinery, on a State Contract, in that they have a signed contract
with the State. Mr. Matt Matherne again stated that he did not understand, he explained it was
because every time they had ever purchased anything or bid on anything that it had to be “or equal”.
He continued by saying that here the resolution states that they had to be John Deere excavators and
they got to be purchased from Doggett Machinery; then asking if they were circumventing the Bid
Law on this. Mr. Atzenhoffer replied no, that they were not; further saying that the State Bid was
specific, that the State puts out a Bid every two years for equipment, cleaning supplies and anything
else. He continued to explain that the State Purchasing Law allows the Parish to purchase off of the
State Contract, in that they had done all of the bidding, taking all of the expenses for bidding, and
they then say that these are the lowest prices on each of them and provide a list of where items can
be purchased from. Mr. Atzenhoffer further said that it was decided that the two pieces of
equipment would best serve the Parish, which they were already on State Bid and have already been
through the bid process. He said that Doggett Machinery was probably selected because they most
likely have them in stock there and that they were honoring the State Bid. A brief debate ensued.
        An amendment was offered by Mr. Atzenhoffer, seconded by Mr. Callais, to add the
wording “including purchasing 36” clean out buckets and anti-theft coverage, authorizing the
Parish President to sign, execute, and administer any and all related documents.” The amendment
carried by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.
        The resolution as amended, carried by a vote of (9) yeas and (0) nays.

the application of it, in that he thought that this may be better left for the next Council. Mr.

be paying. After a brief discussion, the motions were removed and a new motion was offered by

        The next item (41) on the agenda was a resolution requesting approval for the Lafourche
Parish Government to enter into a contract with Laris Insurance Agency, Inc. to renew the
annual general liability, public officials & employee’s liability, vehicle liability comprehensive &
collision, commercial property, commercial property/wind, excess liability (umbrella), commercial
inland marine, and boiler & machine; and authorizes the Parish President to sign, execute and
administer said contracts and all relevant documents. A motion was offered by Mr. Gouaux and
seconded by Mr. Toups.
        Mr. Matherne asked if Request for Proposals (RFP) were done to make sure that this was the
best deal. President Randolph briefly stated that it reflected a reduction of $100,000 from last year.
Mr. Matherne then stated that his question remains, again asking if they had done a RFP to see if this
was the most attractive price. President Randolph replied that she believed that Risk Management
did. Mr. Curole stated that Ms. Faye Smith with Risk Management could better answer the question.
Mr. Matherne reinstated his question to Ms. Smith, asking if they had done a RFP, did they get any
proposals on the coverage, or solicit any other companies, to make sure that it was the lowest one.
Ms. Smith explained the way it worked, saying that it was not unlike home insurance, that the Parish
has been with Travelers for several years now, that they have been through a couple of serious
incidents and they have not increased the premiums. She continued by saying that the Parish should
stay with someone, that if they would make a major change in their coverage and something major
happens in the Parish, that they risk the chance of being dropped and then having to search for
coverage. Ms. Smith said that she was willing to look at any quotes that would be sent to her, in that
it was open and was not signed, sealed and delivered. Mr. Matherne stated to the Council that he
would like to see some comparisons of other companies to ensure the savings.
        Mr. Toups mentioned that he had met with Mr. Laris and that he had showed him where the
Parish had saved a lot of money on their deductibles, he then agreed with Ms. Smith in regards to the
rates, and that he also agreed with looking into quotes, but suggested that they wait until next year to
do so.
        President Randolph reiterated what Ms. Smith had said about changing insurance companies,
particularly for commercial property and wind, right now, could be a very expensive undertaking,
giving an example of homeowners, in finding someone else that would insure coverage. She said
that they have been with the company for quite some time and have built some history with them,
and with that they are willing to stay with them and to reduce the rate, expressing that she felt it to be
a good move in this day and time.
        Mr. Atzenhoffer stated that he agreed with Mr. Matherne, but the problem was that this takes
effect on December 31st. Mr. Matherne asked if the current policy expires on December 31st; with
Mr. Atzenhoffer clarify that according to the front page in which he had that it expires on December
30th because the effective date states December 31, 2007 through December 31, 2008.
        Kris Gaudet, East 38th Street in Cut Off, addressed the Council as an insurance professional
in this line of business being discussed. He stated that it would be wise at this point, being that it
was just 20 days away from renewal and with a major holiday in between, not to seek any other
quotes. Mr. Gaudet then said that he doubted that they would find anything that was more
competitive at this time, but suggested that they start going out for proposals three to four months in
advance for future references.
        President Randolph stated that Laris Insurance searches other insurance carriers to come up
with a plan, comparing it to the hospitalization policy, in the Parish’s best interest, in that they are
looking for the savings.
        Mr. Rodney Doucet, West Main in Cut Off, questioned this item as being a contract because
of the Council’s previous decisions to defer contracts until the Council coming in. He said that he

                                                                                                       15

LPC            DECEMBER 11, 2007               REGULAR SESSION
was concerned because this item was due the 30th and it was entering into a contract, and then
referred to the Home Rule Charter. Mr. Atzenhoffer stated that they could enter into the contract
because it was for professional services, further explaining that the coverage begins the last day of
this year, so they would still be within their term.
        Mr. Gouaux then suggested that the Parish investigate combining entities, giving the Water
District as an example, to see if they could possibly get a better rate. He said that it seems the larger
the group, the better the rates, including health insurances. Mr. Gouaux then requested that the
Administration investigate the possibilities for the next year.
        Mr. Toups stated that he was familiar with insurances, explaining that big companies like
Laris, Jones, and Marcello would get quotes from many different companies and give the best price.
He said that the Parish would probably not beat the current price, but they may charge more
commission, giving examples of his own personal experiences. Mr. Matherne expressed that was his
point, in that they should shop around, giving a piece of the pie throughout the Parish.
        The motion carried by a vote of (6) yeas and (3) nays, that being of Mr. Matherne, Dr.
Lasseigne, and Mr. Callais.
        Jeremiah St. Pierre, West 77th Street in Cut Off, stated that was also an Insurance Agent, that
he was in business for 30 years and that he had never been asked to bid on anything in this Parish,
saying that he can write for the same companies and get the same quotes as the other people that the
Parish are getting quotes from.

LPC            DECEMBER 11, 2007              REGULAR SESSION
        The next item (46) on the agenda was a report from Ray Cheramie, Department Head,
Department of Public Works. Mr. Cheramie, Director of DPW, handed out reports and presented
a PowerPoint presentation (see Exhibit “B”) of ongoing projects being done in the Parish. He began
by showing pictures of the newly purchased dozer, which was approved by the Council, saying that
it has been delivered to Thibodaux and has been working very well in that area. Mr. Cheramie then
showed a slide of the Karen Street Outfall Ditch in District 1, saying that it drains Orlando,
Elizabeth, and Karen Street, in that it was a long awaiting happening to get the right-of-ways with
the land owners and finally got the particular ditch done. He said also in that area was the Pineridge
Outfall Canal, which drains the Pineridge area, in that they had done some clearing of the trees and
cleaning out the canal. Next, was Tiger Drive in District 1, showing the installation of culverts and
catch basins, which also showed how well the Field Office Personnel are attending to do these jobs,
in doing exceptional work, in that the culverts are real straight. Then, in District 2, he showed a
slide of the Bayou Bouef Levee, saying that they had gone in and swept out the reservoir and done
some recapping, heightening, and widening of the levee reservoir. Mr. Cheramie went on to show
the Laurel Valley Road, saying that they had gone in to clean out some of the ditches along the road
which has helped tremendously on eliminating some of the expenses of bringing in recycled material
or limestone. He then showed a picture of a crew of guys trimming the trees on Camelia Drive in
District 3, which the school buses were hitting, eliminating the possibility of the danger from the
branches coming into the bus windows injuring children. Next, was the Forty Arpent Levee in
District 4, pictures that showed the combined effort of the North Lafourche Levee District and of the
Parish. The first picture showed the excavator in the Forty Arpent Canal, digging it out. Mr.
Cheramie explained that it was the North Lafourche Levee District’s machine; but the fuel, the oil,
the major breakdowns, and the Operator is furnished by the Parish. He next showed a slide of
Buccaneer Street in District 4, being the installation of culverts and catch basins, saying that he was
really proud of the Field Office Personnel, in that they were really doing good jobs. Then, in District
5 was Fern Street, showing some sweeping out of the drainage ditches behind homes in the area. He
stated that it was not particularly the type of drainage work that he liked because there were so many
problems with people building sheds, fences, and other items on the Parish right-of-ways. Mr.
Cheramie said that Fern Street was one that they could get into easily and in hauling out the dirt.
Next, were shots from Twin Oaks Drive and Oak View Drive in District 5, which showed what the
Raceland Field Office Personnel were doing regarding drainage along the streets. Mr. Cheramie
continued by showing a slide from District 6, being that of the Hugh Caffery Outfall Canal, saying
that they have finished clearing the trees, explaining that the outfall canal was flooded with trees, as
could be seen on the right side of the slide, in that they had spent quite a bit of time clearing the trees
and that they were now waiting for the availability of a long reach excavator so they can sweep out
the canal. He further stated that it drains from Valentine coming back towards Bollinger Shipyards,
being a pretty good section of that area. Next, was a before and after picture of the Ravenwood
Pump Levee, he said that there was quite a bit of seepage, in that the discharge pipes were leaning
really bad towards the Company Canal where they discharge. He explained that they had gone in,
done a great job in straightening out the discharge pipes, that they drove pilings, hauled in a bunch of
dirt, and completely stopped the water which was running through there, further stating that it was
really bad. Then, he showed a slide of Valentine in District 6, saying that they had spoken about this
months back, in that they had gone in and completely filled the existing reservoir by digging a new
reservoir. He went on to explain that before, that they were unable to traffic the levees with their
tractors and the only way was with their 4-wheelers; but showed that they can now traffic with their
pick up trucks. Next, were two pictures from District 7, showing what was happening at the moment
with the recapping of the Barrios Pump to the Edna Pump Station Levee, in that the dredge is putting

                                                                                                        17

LPC            DECEMBER 11, 2007               REGULAR SESSION
quite a bit of dirt on the inside and on the Bayou Le Bleu side of the levee, in which was coming out
much better than expected. He then showed a slide from District 8 of the Twenty Arpent Canal,
saying that the excavator has started at the Breighton Canal and was working towards the Valerie
Canal, in that it was approaching the half-way mark, further saying that this will help the area
tremendously, especially because they had already done the project earlier last year from the Valerie
to the Twenty Arpent, coming all the way to East 40th. Mr. Cheramie stated that the whole area
would be relieved of quite a bit of flooding problems. Next, was Barry Barrilleaux Outfall Canal in
District 8, he explained that it would assist in draining out West 21st and West 22nd, preventing the
water from going all the way to West 25th. He then showed a slide of the work being done at the
Rene Galjour Outfall Canal, explaining that it would assist in getting some of the waters from the
back of the LCO School. Mr. Cheramie reported on West 59th in District 8, saying that the slide
shows that it is still pretty cluttered, explaining that it was 10 times worst than that, in that they did
not have any room to go into there with any equipment, that they did go in there with Trustees to
clear out the trees and pull the debris out, and that he was planning on trying to go out for bids to
possibly go in there with a marsh buggy excavator to grind the existing trees because there was no
way to get to the back with the houses and sheds on either sides, further explaining that it would
have to be a machine that can straddle over the ditch. Again, in District 8, were West 40th and
Acadia Place Subdivision which were severely flooded with the 10 or so inch rain; with the slide
showing that they have gotten more right-of-ways, in that the excavator had dug some and that the
job was completed, saying that he believed that they would see a big difference. Then, Mr.
Cheramie showed a slide of West 196th Street in District 9, saying that they had finally got to clear
out the area, in that Magnum Mud has granted permission to the Parish to go in and dig a new canal,
to pile the trees off the right-of-way where they can come back and burn them. The next pictures
showed a canal that would assist drainage from West 196th all the way through to West 198th,
which would drain into the outfall canal that they had just dug. Next, were West 213th Street, West
220th, and West 222nd Street, which again showed drainage work being done by the Field Office
Personnel. Mr. Cheramie expressed that he really felt like they have not only accomplished a lot, but
that they were doing much better work, more professional type ditches, and that he was really proud
of the employees.
        Mr. Toups mentioned the hauling of dirt, in the digging of ditches in Gheens, saying that they
was hauling the dirt all the way to Lockport with maybe five or six yards of dirt in them. He said
that the excavator may take 10 minutes to do the job, but it was taking 30 minutes to haul the dirt.
Mr. Toups then asked Mr. Cheramie if they could instead give the dirt away, like they use to, or
stock pile it in different areas. Mr. Cheramie stated that according to the District Attorney’s Office
that they can no longer give the dirt away. He said as they had started cleaning out the ditches in the
Gheens area, that they had stock piled as much dirt as they could on the pump site, which the Parish
has a legal right-of-way on. Other than that, he said as he understands, that they could not just give
it away, so they were just stock piling it in Lockport to be utilized whenever and wherever. Mr.
Toups said that he felt that a lot of time was being lost; and then asked if agreements could be made
with somebody to stock pile dirt in that area, to try to save a couple of hours a day. Mr. Cheramie
said that they can do some research for possibilities of doing so, in that they can maybe rent or get a
right of usage with someone that may have a couple of acres and stock pile it, saying that it would
shrink as it would dry and that they could then fit more dirt in the trucks once it was dry. He said
that giving dirt to people had also became a hassle, in that giving it to one that the neighbors would
then complain, and then mentioned an incident when they were giving dirt and it was being stock
piled on wetlands, further explaining that they had to get really cautious on giving the dirt away.


                                                                                                       18

Recreation and Public Facilities. A written report was submitted (see Exhibit “C”), but an oral

                      ENGINEERS/ARCHITECTS REPORT
       The next item on the agenda was a presentation of planned, presently on going, recently
completed or other projects by appropriate engineering firms engaged by the Parish.
       A written report was submitted by Larry J. Picciola, Inc. (see Exhibit “D”), but an oral report

                             LEGAL ADVISOR REPORT
      The next item on the agenda was to relinquish time to the Lafourche Parish Legal Advisor.
No one spoke.


        Mr. Matherne thanked the Council Members for the last 48 months, hoped that they had
enjoyed the Council as much as he had, that they thought that they had done some really good things
in the last four years. He then thanked the Department Heads. Mr. Matherne said that he will miss
everyone next year, wished them all the very best and continued success, saying that he thought that
they had a really good thing going.
        Mr. Delatte thanked the Administration and all of the Councilmen, saying that he thought
that they had all done their best, in that it was an honor and a privilege to work with them all. He
then said that he hoped that they will have a good working relationship with the new Council coming
in and to continue moving Lafourche Parish forward.
        Mr. Toups wished a Merry Christmas to all.
        Mr. Gouaux thanked everyone for working together with the Council for the last four years.
He then wished everyone in Lafourche Parish a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from
his family to yours, and to be safe.
        Mr. Curole wished a Merry Christmas.
        Mr. Lorraine wished everyone a Merry Christmas, saying that he had enjoyed working a lot
with the young guys on the Council; he said that they had their differences with the Administration,
but they will just keep going, until they vote him out. Mr. Lorraine briefly mentioned that he had
promised Mr. Matherne, and then also extended it Mr. Louis Richard, that District 3 will get the
$40,000 back from Recreation District 3.


                                      ADJOURNMENT
       On motion by Mr. Atzenhoffer, seconded by Mr. Callais, and with no further business, the

            Chairman Lasseigne,

            I am notifying you today of my veto of the following amendments submitted by the
            Lafourche Parish Council on the November 27,2007.

            Veto Justification for Council Amendment #5 - Beachfront Commission 2008 Funding

            As noted at the meeting by members of the Council, councilmen did not have sufficient
            time to review and consider this and other amendments presented from the floor. This
            veto will provide councilmen with the opportunity to better understand and consider the
            merit and implications of the amendment.

            Specifically with regard to the Beachfront Development District, we do not have any
            problems with this amendment and support funding the district for a period until they
            arrange for and identify their own funding.

As noted at the meeting by members of the Council, councilmen did not have sufficient
time to review and consider this and other amendments presented from the floor. This
veto will provide councilmen with the opportunity to better understand and consider the
merit and implications of the amendment.

This set of amendments is out of balance as $500,000of potential 2009 dollars are moved
into 2008. We cannot spend 2009 year revenues in the 2008 budget. An ovenide
underfunds the estimated million dollar project.

       Increase the Fund Balance Fund #I06 by                            67,060

As noted at the meeting by members of the Council, councilmen did not have sufficient
time to review and consider this and other amendments presented from the floor. This
veto will provide councilmen with the opportunity to better understand and consider the
merit and implications of the amendment.

This amendment cuts a portion of the salary of an existing employee and a proposed new
clerk position to assist the Projects Manager.

Specifically with regard to the South Lafourche Annex Project, we do not have any
problems with this amendment and support funding the completion of the project. It was
anticipated that funding for the remainder of this project would materialize from a USDA
loan applied for and pending. This low interest loan is expected to be available in the
Spring of 2008.

         Department Brief

            Prepared by:
Brennan Matherne, Department Head
  At this point, most of the projects that were underway in 2007 are completed (or very
  near completion). We have begun work on any and all remaining projects and will
  carry over that work into 2008. Here are some minor project updates:



  I.     Parks and Recreation
         a. Abby Plantation Recreational Site
               i. The swing set has been assembled at this site and this project is now
                  complete.

         b. Sanchez Boat Launch Ramps
                i. As reported last month, we've hit a number of "snags" on this project that
                   has delayed the completion. However, Crochet's Paving contacted us
                   today that they have basically finished their work at the site and all that is
                   left is to let the last section of concrete dry.
               ii. We will be visiting the site no later than tomorrow (Wednesday) to inspect
                   the project.


   II.    Public Facilities
         a. Raceland Ag Building
               i. The contractor is currently working on punch-list items, but the building is
                  substantially complete, and has already begun to be in use.

         b. LPSO Detention Center
               i. Last month I reported that the jail passed inspections by the Fire Marshall,
                  Health Department and Department of Corrections. To help prevent future
                  problems, especially with the plumbing, we have now begun the process
                  of determining and executing "preventive maintenance" on jail problem
                  areas such as plumbing.


If any of you should ever have any questions regarding any project or a request about any
building or recreation/park topic, do not hesitate to call my ofice at (985) 446-8427.


Thank you,

waiting lists for services; enhanced services will require the coordination of volunteers, staff
and increased funding from a variety of sources; and

The citizens of Lafourche voted on November 2, 2004, to rededicate twenty-five percent of a
millage formerly dedicated to health units within the parish to senior citizens activities; and

While the Lafourche Parish Council will annually allocate the uses of these funds for 2007 the
Council is offering an increase in funding for services offered by the Council on Aging;

these funds to cover 50% of the monthly expense. Any calculated remaining balance may be
drawn down in December 2008 for general use.

Section 5
This agreement does not guarantee future levels of funding from General Fund or any other
funding source. It is requested that the Council on Aging participate in the development of the
Parish’s 2009 Operations and Maintenance Budget beginning in May 2008.

Section 6
