Acadia jurors to advertise for secretary-treasurer

After learning that state law prohibits the appointment of an “interim” treasurer, the Acadia Parish Police Jury will advertise to fill the vacancy in that position that will be created with the resignation of Laura Faul on Feb. 14.
Faul, who was appointed by the jury to a two-year term as secretary-treasurer on Feb. 11, 2016, announced that she will be leaving the parish administrative office to accept the position of chief civil deputy with the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office following the police jury’s monthly meeting.
