Navigation District meets December 3

By Cyndi Sellers

The Cameron Parish Pilot has been named official journal for the Calcasieu Cameron Navigation District. The board took the action at its second meeting, held Monday, Dec. 3, in the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury meeting room. No other bids were received. The board intends to publish in the American Press as well, once a price quote is given, to get full coverage of both parishes.

Selection of a fiscal agent was postponed until the January meeting, to give time for review of proposals submitted by various institutions.

Most of the board’s discussion concerned a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement being prepared with the Lake Charles Harbor and Terminal District, assigning the Lake Charles Port the responsibility of being the non-federal sponsor for maintenance of the Calcasieu Ship Channel until an ad valorem tax passes in both parishes for the operation of the Navigation District and agreeing that the Lake Charles Port will retain ownership of all dredge spoil disposal sites it currently owns.

Sites under lease or servitude by the Lake Charles Port would be transferred to the Navigation District or re-negotiated when that time comes, said Sen. Blade Morrish, author of the Navigation District legislation. The CEA must be signed by both entities by Feb. 28, according to the law, but may be amended later as needed, he said.

Cameron Parish District Attorney Jennifer Jones will work with Lake Charles Port attorney John Ringo to finalize the CEA language in time for both entities to approve it.
