OBERLIN, La. (AP) - The Police Jury plans to use a state grant of more than $641,000 to pay for extension of a sewer line in rural Allen Parish.
Assistant Road Supervisor Joel Johnson tells The American Press the project will extend sewer lines to more than 30 homes in the Lavan subdivision near Elton.
He says homeowners there do not currently have public sewer service. The new system will tie into the Elton sewer system.
Allen Parish officials have been working for nearly 18 years to obtain funding for the work, which is expected to begin by the end of 2014.
