Claiborne Parish Road Superintendent Dean Busby's Retirement Party was held Friday, May 19th

After nearly 24 1/2 years of service to Claiborne Parish, Road Superintendent Dean Busby retired 05/11/06. Dean's Retirement Party was held from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Friday, May 19th at the Claiborne Parish Police Jury Complex, on Homer Square.

Dean Busby began his career with the Claiborne Parish Police Jury Highway Department on July 15, 1982. Originally hired as an Equipment Operator, Dean advanced to Parish Wide Operations Foreman approximately 3 years later and was promoted to Assistant Superintendent in 1987. In 1988 he became Road Superintendent, serving as the head of the Claiborne Parish Highway Department, a position he has held for approximately 18 years. Dean was instrumental in acquiring state and federal funds close to Five Million Dollars to improve the Claiborne Parish Bridge System at no cost to Claiborne Parish taxpayers.

Additional service to our parish was provided by Mr. Busby as an Auxiliary Deputy Sheriff to The Claiborne Parish Sheriff's Office for over 10 years.

Dean is a resident of Bernice, Louisiana, married with four children, and 7 grandchildren (soon to be eight). Fishing, hunting, gardening and just shooting the breeze are his most cherished past times. His lifelong passion has been to help all those around him and to be a friend to all.

Dean will be missed by the Claiborne Police Jury Staff and all of the employees at the Claiborne Parish Highway Department.

Tommy Durrett, former North Claiborne foreman has been promoted to Road Superintendent and will assume Mr. Busby's duties on May 12, 2006.
