Meeting &#34;jumpstarts&#34; reservoir plans
Rep. Hollis Downs, R-Ruston, hosted the meeting of area engineers, financial leaders, and government representatives. Downs told those who gathered at his office on Mississippi Street that the project has the complete support of Lincoln Parish's congressional delegation.
"Rick (Rep. Rick Gallot, D-Grambling), Bob (Sen. Robert Kostelka) and I are committed to the project for Lincoln Parish," Downs said. "They've sort of given me the green light to run with this."
