The second Bogalusa town hall meeting will be held on Tuesday.

Mayor Wendy Perrette announced the meeting at the end of the city council meeting this week.

It will begin at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall and focus on education.

This town hall meeting follows the first last month and like that one, it will be an informal meeting between elected and public officials in an attempt to identify problems and look for solutions.

At the first town hall meeting, a handful of problem areas were identified — including code enforcement, schools, road conditions and youth activities.

City councilman Doug Ritchie and local attorney Bill Arata organized the first meeting. Based on the first meeting, more meetings are planned focused on the specific areas of concern.
