One of the actions taken by the Washington Parish Council last Monday (May 20, 2019) was to hold a Public Hearing and then to approve an ordinance ordering and calling a special election to be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019 to authorize the amendment and restatement, in its entirety, of the Home Rule Charter of the Parish of Washington. The Council has been working on updating the charter for a long time and has invited and received input from the public.
