LIVINGSTON PARISH - Leaders will meet tomorrow night in Livingston for their first Home Rule Charter meeting.

The goal of the Charter Commission is to keep friction out of government and terminate disagreements about powers and duties of those elected. The panel includes three Parish Council members, six members of the public and a representative of Parish President Layton Ricks.

The Charter was written after the original Charter was designed 10 years ago, and many items in the document are outdated.

Each council member has the option of serving as a voting member or can appoint a representative.

Tuesday, the Charter will elect a chairman. The meeting is at 5:30 p.m. and open to the public.
