Parish council verifies human resource director

Staff Report

The Ascension Parish Council confirmed Cheryl Kinchen as head of Human Resources Wednesday night.

Kinchen had been head of the Recreation Department until she recently became interim Human Resources director.

Parish President Tommy Martinez said her work has been outstanding and fully recommended her for the permanent role.

Council members also adopted a resolution to correct a situation in which members of the Planning and Zoning Commission had been appointed to six- and eight-year terms.

The change clarifies the length of commissioners' terms, which should have been for four years.
