Welcome Message From
Parish President
Clint Cointment

Welcome to the Ascension Parish Government website. This site was designed for you, to give you the most current and accurate information about your government.
Here you will find information about all aspects of Parish Government: how to contact me or your Council representative; how to request services or file complaints; see the Parish calendar, meetings, minutes, the Charter. I want to make sure that you, the public, are fully informed about all of the work of your government.
Ascension Parish is a wonderful place to raise a family, start a business and to call home. Ascension has a top rated school system, a strong economy and abundant recreation and shopping opportunities. But with success comes challenges. The rapid and explosive population growth has outpaced our highways and byways. Relieving traffic congestion and improving drainage will be the top priority of my administration. I am eager to work with everyone to achieve the best solutions for all of our residents, while upholding my promise to provide transparency in our new government administration.
I am very excited about the future of Ascension Parish! And I am proud to be a part of it!
