Parish President to open satellite permit office in Golden Meadow

Parish President to open satellite permit office in Golden Meadow

A satellite permit office in Thibodaux, and one soon to be installed in Golden Meadow, may help Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle fulfill one of his campaign promises.

“My dream (is) that we can do it better and quicker, and it won’t be as incumbent on people to come back and forth four or five times (for a permit)”, said Cantrelle.

His comments were in answer to Councilman Jerry Jones who thanked Cantrelle and his administration for a satellite permit office, opened recently and without fanfare in Thibodaux, that Jones says is “working great”.

“I got three constituents who called and one who came to my house, who said the two people at the office are working real good,” said Jones.

Cantrelle then directed his comments to Councilman Daniel Lorraine in saying that “since the cat was out the bag,” he would have a similar office opened in Golden Meadow within two weeks.

Further enlightening the Council on some of his plans for permitting, Cantrelle promised that it will be easier to get a permit in the future.

“We’re going to do everything on-line--applying for a permit on-line, paying for it on-line,” he said.
Cantrelle said the delay in opening the Golden Meadow satellite permit office was due to a need to hire and train additional personnel.

“It’s working out pretty good, and when we finalize it we’ll have a press release,” he said.
Lorraine was happy with the announcement.

“I want to thank Mr. Cantrelle. It only took two months and I’ve waited for twelve years,” said Lorraine.
