A meeting of the Bogalusa Council Finance Committee was held on May 2, 2024. Attending were Council members Mark Irvine and Gloria Kates and Mayor Tyrin Truong, Comptroller Jerry Bailey, and Perry Smalls from the Administration. Also providing input were representatives from the Police and Fire departments, Judge David Merlin Duke and other Bogalusa residents.

Progress was made on the amended 2024 Budget. The meeting included reporting on negotiations but also saw its share of "bickering", bad language, disrespect, disagreements, and verbal attacks on the Council.
