As of Tuesday afternoon, the West Baton Rouge School Board is preparing to make a decision that will affect the parish’s education system for years to come.
An architect hired to evaluate Port Allen’s old city hall, police station and fire station at 710 N. Jefferson Ave. is recommending that the city demolish the aging structure.
Last week, the West Baton Rouge Museum began their ever-popular Blast from the Past summer camp and simultaneously celebrated their newest structure on campus.
After lengthy discussion, the Brusly Town Council voted Monday night to terminate the employment of well-known Brusly policeman and school resource officer, Gil Banta.
In a 4-1 vote, with only councilman Shane Andre voting against the recommendation, the council agreed to fire Banta – after explaining that it was not personal – based on his lack of basic and firearms Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) certifications.
Interim Police Chief Richie Johnson said that Banta’s lack of POST certifications creates an issue, not only with the POST Council, but also with the town’s insurance carrier.
