Energy company donates emergency floodlights to BSO

A large energy and petrochemical concern donated two diesel-powered emergency floodlight arrays to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office last Friday, Feb. 21.

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. purchased the powerful 4,000–watt lighting units from United Rentals of Bossier City to donate them to the Sheriff’s Office after Enterprise area manager Kevin J. Cryblskey met Bossier sheriff’s crime scene investigator Sgt. David Faulk at a Louisiana Emergency Planning Commission meeting. Cryblskey, wanting to make a contribution to the sheriff’s office, asked Faulk what equipment Enterprise might donate, and Faulk mentioned the emergency lights.

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington said, “We’re very grateful for the generosity and public spirit shown by Enterprise Products Partners in donating these lighting units. It shows that Enterprise takes public safety issues very seriously and cares about the well-being of the community. These are good corpo rate citizens.” Faulk said, “These light plants will be very valuable to us. Often we have to take care of emergency situations and crime scenes outdoors after dark in remote locations. These lights are so powerful, these two units could illuminate an area the size of a football field.”

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. is one of the largest publicly traded partnerships and a leading North American provider of midstream energy services to producers and consumers of natural gas, NGLs, crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals.

Their services include: natural gas gathering, treating, processing, transportation and storage; NGL transportation, fractionation, storage and import and export terminals (including liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG); crude oil and refined products transportation, storage and terminals; offshore production platforms; petrochemical transportation and services; and a marine transportation business that operates primarily on the United States Inland and Intracoastal Waterway systems and in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Louisiana Legislature just completed a “do nothing” session that proved to be a stalemate towards solving the state’s financial crisis. A new regular session has begun with few signs that anything substantive will come about. By law, no new tax matters can be considered in this even numbered year.

Flurry’s second objection to the ordinance is the requirement that permit application for cell towers must be reviewed by the city’s independent expert consultant. The city has been working with a national consultant who has a track record of requiring unreasonable, expensive requirements for cell tower installations.

Every five years, several ad valorem property taxes are placed before the citizens for renewals that provide basic city services and salaries/ benefits for our first responders and other city employees. The last time this occurred was 2013. In 2017 the taxes expired, and we made the decision to only go out for the taxes when necessary, and not before.
