Mayor John Lemoine.JPG

As Mayor, I would like to welcome you to the City of Marksville a friendly community located in Central Louisiana in the parish of Avoyelles. I am a life long resident of Marksville, attended Presentation Catholic School, graduated from Marksville High School and attended Louisiana State University. I served as board member for the Avoyelles Parish School Board for 27 years, including service as Chairman of the Executive Committee, the Finance Committee and the Building and Lands Committee. The School Board is the second largest business in Avoyelles Parish. I have learned first-hand how government works and how to serve the needs of the people.


I have assembled a Citizen’s Advisory Committee to help me lead Marksville through the many challenges our City faces and to make sure we achieve our full potentials. I have organized our city projects with teams of employees to oversee the completion of maintenance jobs throughout the city.  This ensures projects being finished in an organized and timely manner on a rotating and regular scheduled basis. Spring Bayou was once an area that could rightly be called a “Sportsman’s Paradise,” and I am working to restore it to its former glory.  This could provide an economic boost to our City by bringing in wildlife enthusiasts from around the parish and beyond.


I am the father of three  children, married Nancy Baudin, and a business owner for 42 years.  We are very proud of our friendly small town atmosphere and I invite you to browse through our website to familiarize yourself with our businesses, churches, historical sites, Tunica Biloxi Museum, Marksville State Historical Park, walking tracks, fine restaurants and for and added attraction the Paragon Casino Resort (gift shop, three cinemas, golf trail and much more). I invite you to take time to visit our city and experience our quality of life.
