Enjoying a busy new job

Posted on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 3:00 pm

The new Pike County Eastern Commissioner is beginning to settle into the job.
Justin Sheppard has enjoyed the challenges presented by his new title.
“So far we’ve been tackling the budget and working on bridge projects,” he said. “Roads and bridges are a big part of what we do.”
The transition into office has been smooth for Sheppard with no big surprises catching him off guard.
“I’m enjoying working with the different committees—the Hwy. 54 Coalition meetings have been good,” Sheppard said.

Pike County Eastern Commissioner Justin Sheppard reviews bridge information ahead of meeting with MoDOT and Louisiana Special Road District representatives on Monday, March 6.
