Parish Government offices in Amite to be named in honor of Tangipahoa's first Parish President

AMITE, LA, October 3, 2019 - A formal dedication ceremony will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 8 to name the Tangipahoa Parish Government Annex as the "Gordon A. Burgess Governmental Building."

Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller announced today that the dedication ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the governmental offices located at 206 E. Mulberry Street in Amite.
