Mamou Council approves chief’s recommendations


News Editor

The Mamou Town Council approved several personnel recommendations made by Police Chief Greg Dupuis during its meeting Wednesday, December 3.

Dupuis recommended the council approve a pay increase for Keisha Manuel, who was taking on additional duties in the department. He recommended a raise of $1 per hour, bringing Manuel up to $8.88 per hour.

The second recommendation was for Charles “Tiny” Israel to be hired as the town’s part-time crossing guard. The crossing guard directs traffic on Sixth Street when students begin leaving school at 3 p.m.

The final recommendation was to hire Alexis Ortego as a part-time clerical worker.

All three recommendations were unanimously approved by the council.

The council also met in a lengthy executive session to discuss strategic planning regarding the lease of the Savoy Medical Center. No action was taken.
