Avoyelles Parish Solid Waste Information

Click below to see the numbers for yourself.

LET ME HELP OUR COMMUNITIES.  LET’S GROW AVOYELLES PARISH.

 

As a life-long resident of Avoyelles Parish, I am committed to making the parish a place where families can flourish and kids won’t have to move away to find a job. With my experience as an entrepreneur, I know how to create jobs and opportunities. I’ll work hard in Baton Rouge to grow our job base and give every one of us a chance to succeed.

 

LET’S STOP WASTEFUL SPENDING

Politicians in Baton Rouge are risking our future to fund their wasteful ways. I will use my knowledge as a successful job creator to force government to live within its means, cut our taxes and give the citizens something back for their tax dollars.

 

I SUPPORT OUR SCHOOLS

I know firsthand the schools in Avoyelles Parish and across the state. I understand the importance of giving parents and students the chance to achieve their dreams. I support giving every student a strong start, high expectations, effective teachers and quality schools.

 

I WANT TO PRESERVE OUR WAY OF LIFE

My Christian values guide me every day. I am  pro-life and committed to protecting the rights of the unborn. As a sportsman, I will defend the Second Amendment and will fight to protect the rights and culture of our community.

🚦 Got a Traffic Camera Ticket? New Law Makes It Easier to Appeal! 🚦

As traffic cameras have become more common in Louisiana, they’ve caused frustration among many drivers. I’m proud to announce that a new state law, which I helped author and pass, now makes it much easier to appeal these citations!

If you weren’t driving the car when the ticket was issued, simply fill out the back of the ticket with a truthful affidavit stating so, and the fine will be dropped. This is just one of several new protections for motorists included in the law I worked on.

Other key points:

• Automated enforcement in school zones will share revenue with local school districts.
• Restrictions on the use of handheld automated enforcement devices.
• Appeals are allowed if you were clearing the way for an emergency vehicle, following police instructions, or driving in hazardous conditions.

This law aims to bring fairness and transparency to traffic enforcement and reduce the financial burden on our communities.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need assistance with your appeal!

Thank you for coming.

During the 2024 legislative session I was able to work with Governor Landry and legislative leadership to bring significant project investments back to our community! The list includes millions in parish road funding, $4.5 million for educational and recreational facilities, a new toxicology machine for the Avoyelles Parish Coroner, and a much-needed GPR machine for water systems in Avoyelles.

It's important that our fair share of tax dollars be re-invested in the needs of our community and I will fight for that every day in Baton Rouge!

**Groundbreaking for a $6.63 Million Flood Mitigation Project at Bayou Lacombe:**

It was an honor to be a part of the Town of Mansura’s groundbreaking ceremony for the $6.63 million flood mitigation project at Bayou Lacombe.

The Bayou Lacombe Channel Improvements Project will harden 3,500 feet of banks along the bayou. Additionally, obstructions such as limbs, trees, garbage, accumulated silt, and tires will be removed to clear the channel’s flow.

This was the first major project I worked on after being elected State Representative, and it's finally coming to fruition. This project will not only help alleviate flooding in Mansura and surrounding areas but also brings economic development to Avoyelles Parish through YellaWood's commitment to a $50 million expansion of their facility, which will hire an additional hundred direct employees and create hundreds of indirect jobs.

Our work and my commitment, along with the state’s, to deliver these drainage improvements to the areas served by Bayou LaCombe led to YellaWood’s commitment to invest $50 million into their Mansura facility.

Great Job, Daryl !!!

Thank you

It was a privilege to visit AVAP today and witness students in my district applying the valuable skills they've learned through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) by launching rockets they built from plastic bottles.

Having personally supported this program for years, I was deeply impressed by the students participating in the 2024 STEM Avoyelles Rocketeers Program. They did an amazing job, and I can't wait to see what they will accomplish next.

It's great that they ran the fiber, but it's so expensive that it's not affordable for most people.

Nice job. Now let’s work on better regulation of our elderly care facilities. That’s a big concern for a lot of residents and has been addressed recently by our legislators. Calls have been made to our representatives without response. I hope our elderly loved ones are being thought of in Baton Rouge.

it sounds like a big gumbo with nothing in it
