06/14/20 Hurricane Katrina infrastructure projects; still ahead… See Map
ore infrastructure (FEMA) projects lie ahead… all south of the railroad tracks.  After bids are awarded but before construction begins to replace the water lines, sewer lines, drainage lines, roads and sidewalks, a pre-construction meeting will be scheduled for an explanation of what will be occurring and to answer questions neighborhood residents may have.  If you live in one of those neighborhoods, be sure to attend!  It’s been my experience that only about 10% of the residents, if that many, attend these pre-construction meetings… they’re for your benefit.
