The parish is applying for funding through the Louisiana Community Development Block Grant Program for street overlay projects on East 14th Street in Reserve and Marigold Street in Garyville. Sutherland said the grant application is for $600,000 per street.The council approved a resolution to allow the parish to reallocate funds from the ongoing inflow/infiltration sewer project for use in the Minor Housing Repair Program. The parish will use $746,000 from the sewer project to make repairs to 50 additional homes in need of repairs from damage caused by hurricanes Gustav and Ike in 2008. The council approved the additional homes back in September, bringing the total number of homes served by the program to 110. Total budget for the Minor Housing Repair Program is $2.024 million.
