Bogalusa Council Approves Sunday Alcohol Sales

In a split vote, the Bogalusa Council voted Tuesday (April 17, 2018) to amend the City's code to allow the sale of alcohol on Sundays from 12:00 noon to 10 pm. The vote came after hearing from several residents and after discussion by members of the Council.
Councilwoman Fortenberry voted against the amendment, Council President Kates abstained, and the rest of the Council voted in favor of the amendment.
Video of the full council meeting will be available on our Government Meetings page tomorrow.
In other business, the Council
  • authorized the Mayor to obtain counsel to pursue damages the city has suffered as a result of the opioid crisis, 
  • approved a resolution adopting LaMATS Procurement Services, 
  • tabled a resolution in support of the Washington Parish Council resolution regarding the parish landfill and 
  • amended the City's ordinance pertaining to burials to provide for stiff penalties, primarily affecting funeral homes. The primary problem is that burials in Bogalusa Cemetery are not deep enough, causing a health problem. It was noted in the discussions that, at least in one case, the casket was only about three inches deep, instead of required two feet.
