AMITE---Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller requested that all flags be lowered this week in memory of longtime Amite Mayor Buddy Bel, who died Sunday afternoon.

Bel was serving in the final year of his second term as Mayor at the time of his death. He previously served on the Amite Town Council and the Tangipahoa Parish School Board. He was also a United States veteran.

“Buddy Bel spent much of his life in service to the people of Tangipahoa Parish. He was elected to many offices over his career, including School Board, city council, and most recently as Mayor of Amite. Regardless of the role in which he was elected to serve, Buddy went out of his way to help people. There is no doubt that he will be remembered for the kindness he showed over a lifetime of selfless service to others," Miller said.

Miller asked that flags remain at half-mast until after funeral services for Bel this Friday in Amite.

AMITE—Effective today (Friday, Oct. 11), Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller announces the parish’s burn ban has been lifted.

“Due to overnight rain totals and a forecast track that calls for additional showers in our area throughout this afternoon, our local fire departments concur that conditions no longer call for a burn ban across Tangipahoa Parish,” Miller said.

Miller established a burn ban on Sept. 30, citing nearly two months of dry and abnormally hot weather conditions across our area.
