The Washington Parish Council Infrastructure Committee met Monday (June 21, 2021) evening. The bulk of the lengthy meeting addressed the solar panel issue in the parish. The meeting was well-attended and organized and all persons wishing to speak, did so. Two proposed ordinances to regulate solar panel installations were reviewed (links provided below): one was prepared by concerned citizens and the other was a draft prepared by the Committee. Speakers provided information, asked questions, and offered opinions. Work on an ordinance will continue and ultimately be presented to the Washington Parish Council for consideration.
In addition, the Committee discussed upcoming redistricting and a moratorium on waivers provided by the Planning and Zoning Commission as it relates to mobile homes over 25 years of age.
Video of the meeting was edited to only include the solar panel part(s) of the meeting.
