Steve Lemmons has announced his bid for re-election to District 7 of the Webster Parish Police Jury.
Lemmons has served four years on the police jury.
"I would like to take this time to thank the residents of District 7 for the opportunity they have given me to serve them," Lemmons said. "We have been able to hardsurface all the roads in District 7 with the exception of Tom Crighton which is in the process of being done."
Lemmons said Heflin Ranch Road and Garrett Loop are complete.
"We are in the process of acquiring a grant to resurface the Winwood Subdivision of the Penal Farm Road," he said.
In addition, grants have been acquired for the District 1 sewer. Old lines have been replaced and troubled areas reworked.
"We continue to work on blighted property off Eisenhower Rd. in the Winwood Subdivision," Lemmons said.
Fire ratings are very important to Webster Parish.
"I have been also able to help equip Fire District 4 with instrumental equipment for the station and trucks," Lemmons said. "We will continue to work with District 4 to help ensure our volunteer firefighters safety with good equipment."
Lemmons serves as vice chairman for the road committee and serves on the environmental committee, administrative committee, equipment committee, Intergovernmental Relations, Legislation and Industrial Development committee.
He currently serves on the Sparta Water Commission.
"We deal with many different water issues in many different parishes," Lemmons said. "As you very well know, water is a precious resource. The Sparta Commission is in the process of developing educational sessions in the Webster Parish School System to educate on construction."
Lemmons said he feels the rural water systems are in constant need of upgrades and help.
"We will continue to help Dubberly and Union Grove water systems as much as possible," he said.
Lemmons is married to Somer Lemmons with three children – Anna Grace, Keegan and Kendelle. They are members of Calvary Baptist Church in Minden.
He has been a resident of Webster Parish since he was a child.
"I can say I am proud too raise a family here," he said. "I've been a small business owner of Steven Uptown Barber Shop for 18 years here in Minden."
Lemmons thanked all the staff at the police jury office and the work crews.
"It has been a great four years," he said. "I look forward to four more years with the support of my District 7 residents. Please contact me if I can be any help to you at 377-7564.
