The good

  • The website appears to be under construction, with many key pages listed as "coming soon."
  • The County Clerk is the only official with contact information posted.[1]

The bad

  • No information is provided about how parish residents can request access to public documents of the parish under Louisiana's sunshine laws.
  • An inspection of the website finds that it includes no information about who is on the police jury (the governing agency) of the parish. Links to information about the police jury lead nowhere.
