Ruston City Council members made decisions on the future of several structures at Monday night’s regular meeting, including one of their own.
Lewis Love, city administrator, said more than 300 structures have been demolished or hauled off in the last four years.
“I keep thinking we will have them all, and they just keep coming,” Love said. “They were all basically falling down. The structures were an eyesore and safety hazard with possible illegal activities going on inside them. I think they will keep coming — hopefully not at this level.”
Ruston Community Theatre’s production of “On Golden Pond” opened Wednesday at the Dixie Center for the Arts. Other performances are at 7 p.m. tonight and Friday and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for students or by season ticket.
Sen. Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, plans to introduce the Success Ultimately Comes from Capital, Contracting, Education, Strategic Partnerships and Smart Regulation (SUCCESS) Act of 2012 as a stand-alone bill after the same language received strong bipartisan support in the Senate today as an amendment.
Sen. Landrieu offered the SUCCESS Act, which would spur small businesses job growth and boost entrepreneurship, as an amendment to S. 2237, the Small Business Jobs and Tax Relief Act. The SUCCESS Act, which received 57 votes, including support from five Republicans, is the result of multiple committee hearings, including three roundtables hosted by Chair Landrieu earlier this year to explore strategies, tools and methods to strengthen the ecosystem of entrepreneurship.
