CADDO PARISH COMMISSION ADOPTS 2021 BUDGET

The Caddo Parish Commission officially adopted the Parish of Caddo’s 2021 Annual Operating and Capital Improvement Budget at the Commission’s 2021 special budget adoption meeting on Friday, December 4.  

The $77,128,480 operating and capital budget addresses the Parish’s most urgent operational needs, capital improvement initiatives, support of Parish agencies, economic development and social programs.

“The annual Parish budget represents one of the most important policy documents that the Commission will enact during the course of a year,” said Mario Chavez, Commission President. “The budget reflects the resources, strategies and goals of the Parish in the delivery of public services to our citizens and is indicative of the Commission’s financial discipline to ensure that funds are available for current and future Parish needs,” said Chavez.

While the 2021 budget is balanced and represents a sustainable plan that positions the Parish to complete priorities, the Parish is mindful of the potentially changing conditions locally and nationally.  These include:

  • The ongoing COVID19 pandemic
  • Raise the Age”, the state law that mandates 17 year olds be processed and housed by the juvenile justice system
  • Estimated $4 million dollar deficit in the Juvenile Justice budget
  • Increased operational expenses at the Caddo Correctional Center (CCC)

“We are confident that the 2021 budget is a conservative one, one that preserves funding for the essential services upon which our citizens rely,” said Woodrow Wilson, Jr, Parish Administrator and CEO.  “We remain committed to continuing the exercise sound fiscal management across all department budgets to ensure we can respond to changing services demands and effectively utilize our existing resources,” said Wilson.
