City Council: Winn Dixie, 84 Water System, New WPD Units, Contract With WPDF

The Winn Parish Enterprise would like to amend the title from the headline for the week of January 15, 2020. The original headline read: “Winnfield City Council: Private Meeting, 2018 Audit Findings.” WPE would like to clarify that the meeting was not private. This adjective was used in an attempt to portray, in an abbreviated form, the nature of the Executive Session. Winnfield City Council meetings are always open to the public.

At the first regular meeting of the Winnfield City Council, the agenda was amended to add, at the end of the meeting, a discussion that needed to be held in Executive Session regarding some potential litigation.

Lions: “Sponsor A Flag, Foster Patriotism”

Lions: “Sponsor A Flag, Foster Patriotism”

The “Dobber Brazzell Memorial Flag Project” is one aspect of Lions International here in Winn Parish that is truly a community cooperation endeavor. Anyone driving through Winnfield on designated flag days and/or patriotic holidays will have seen the dozens of unfurled, waving American flags lining the streets of downtown Winnfield.

The project originated as a way to raise money for the many worthy projects of the local Lions Club. A few of these causes include eye care and research, the Lions Handicapped Children’s Camp at Leesville, free eyeglasses for the needy in our area, and “Just Because” Rose Day which uses dozens and dozens of roses to cheer our ladies and nursing home residents in the area.
