    I just read some of the 45 pages pertaining to public bid law. Never crossed that before. I didn’t realize there was that much regulation concerning public works.

    Otherwise knowledgeable sports talking heads that say “verse” instead of “versus” when talking about a game. It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard.

    Yep -

    Why the state can't have a centralized bid site where all bids are posted on the public domain is beyond my comprehension - it would save my small parish about $7k a year just at the Police Jury level

    Same thing for publishing minutes and publishing notices

    There has got to be a better more efficient way

    I would say more folks have access to the internet now than they do print

    Our state government if full of things that were born out of corruption. Some of these things still exist and are overlooked because we don't know about the waste and some like using newspapers in the bid process are just antiquated and need to go because those involved in the process are either dead or out of business.

    Well I am sure your public journal is just like all of the rest in the state, they charge a pretty steep rate for legals compared to commercial advertising. The requirement of publishing in print is one of the things that is keeping the small town papers profitable and able to continue operating. The downside is that I am afraid we would see some of these local papers cease to exist without the legals and frankly, that is the only news print that I read anymore.

    If they go out of business because they lose parish funds that the parish can't afford, so be it.

    Let them do things like ad sales and overpriced obits to stay in business.

    Correct -

    I told one of the local owners if our $$ or the school board $$ is what is keeping you in business - you need to close up shop and get out of the business...

    State wide rate is a maximum of $4.50 per square for legal ads (set by revised statute) - which is actually less than their regular commercial rates

    Amazing how larger market public bodies pick the higher subscription rate dailies (over $100/year), compared to a local weekly (around $30/year) as their "official journal."

    Once again - set by archaic R.S. probably from the Lemke/Long era

    I'll go you one further - their are some bid types that force us to advertise both in our local journal and the largest daily - so we get hit with a DOUBLE WHAMMY
