Today a groundbreaking was held directly across from the public safety complex for a new tax collections and civil department building. It’s the 3rd phase of the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office consolidation effort. So far Sheriff Guidroz has taken steps to develop a public safety complex, and move the 9-1-1 communications district facility to a new complex. His primary objective is to improve operating efficiency and managerial control. Completion for the new building is expected by January of 2019.
Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said, “This building, this new tax and civil office is as a result of savings,we are not borrowing money, there’s no debt incurred here, we are going to pay for this building just as soon as it is complete, and we are proud of that.”
