Permits required for service workers

Calcasieu Parish officials have issued an executive order requiring all individuals and businesses performing services in the parish to obtain a temporary work permit.

The order, signed by Calcasieu Parish Police Jury President Hal McMillin, acknowledges the need for businesses from out of the area to perform necessary work such as tree and debris removal, roof repairs and other emergency-related services. It requires businesses to provide documentation including certificates of liability insurance and worker’s compensation coverage.

The permits will be available at the Parish Government building at 1015 Pithon St. in Lake Charles between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. There is no charge. The temporary permits allow businesses to operate throughout the period of the State of Emergency, which ends Monday, Oct. 24.

Also necessary for issuance of the permits are the company name, address, business telephone number and a copy of the driver’s license of the applicant.

The order is effective immediately. It covers all municipalities and unincorporated areas within Calcasieu Parish.
