Update on April 2 rain event
City services has been assessing the drainage situation in several areas throughout Central, including Plantation Way, Crystal Place, Blackwater Road, Cimeron. IBTS is working in other areas throughout the day as citizens alert city services to other problem areas.
We are continuing to clear ditches and culverts, as part of an ongoing citywide inspection. We are also working with the parish and state to coordinate drainage from our roads into those canals that are the responsibility of the state.
Thank you to those who have contacted city services to alert us to problem areas. We encourage everyone to call us at 262-5000 or email the mayor and city council for any other areas that need to be addressed.
We ask for your patience today as we handle increased call/email volume at city services.
