GONZALES, La. (AP) - Outgoing Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez is on a hard push to wrap up about $20.5 million in public building and facility projects conceived, funded and begun during his two most recent terms in office.

The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1PUuqhk ) reports some projects are still underway. Others are already completed or are just about finished, including a $6.9 million parish administrative complex in Gonzales that was accepted by the Parish Council Thursday as substantially complete. Substantially complete buildings can be occupied and are down to the final details.

The contemporary-style parish government complex sits along a lake that once framed East Ascension Hospital, which was demolished in 2014.

Other projects that are completed or nearly completed are the Sorrento Community Center, the west Ascension public works building and a Donaldsonville splash park.
