Parish President Joey Durel can be seen on GMA every Thursday around 6:40am to answer your questions. This week Joey Durel answered the following questions, please watch the video attached to hear the answers.
1) From Bobby Cobb:
I see that work is about to begin on extending LA Avenue from Maryview Farm to Butcher Switch. In addition, the final phase of the project which would extend the road to Gloria Switch is tentatively planned to go out for bid in 6 months. Total cost for both of these project phases over $10 million. While I applaud seeing my tax dollars used for something, I can't help but question the reasoning for this project taking priority over some long overdue road upgrades in the south side of the parish such as widening Kaliste Saloom and/or upgrading Pinhook between Kaliste Saloom and University.
