Metro 1 District Meetings
Metro 1 Meetings were organized in 1988 by Councilman Jewel “Duke” Welch,
who is the father of Councilman Trae Welch. Keeping with tradition,
Councilman Trae Welch would like to invite any citizen residing in District
1 to attend the monthly Metro 1 Meetings, which are held throughout the
district. Council District 1 covers the northern part of the parish,
including Pride/Chaneyville areas and the cities of Baker and Zachary and a
small portion of Central. “My goal is to have public involvement, giving
each and every person in Council District 1 an opportunity to voice t heir
opinion, share ideas or suggestions and have Metro 1 serve as a
clearinghouse for information.” Councilmember Welch will be moving around
the district on a monthly basis in an effort to reach every citizen. Metro 1
meeting’s will be held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Look
