By PAUL KEDINGER
The officers of Fire District No. 9 were re-elected without opposition to their offices during Monday night’s sesion.
Rayne Fire Chief Lee Hebert was renamed chairman, a position he has filled since the district was formed.
Co-Chairman is Chad “Humpty” Abshire, while Chad Dupuis will continue as secretary- treasurer.
Hebert reported that he had purchased two laptop computers and related equipment from the state surplus department.
The board accepted a bid from D&B Contractors for labor and materials to repair a section of roof on the North substation located on Oak Street. The total bid was $9,595.13.
The board members agreed to purchase GPS navigation units for about 15 of the department’s firemen who have met the annual training standards.
