A host of government officials from St. John the Baptist Parish and Tangipahoa, including St. John Parish President Natalie Robottom, were on hand to mark the occasion, along with several project organizers.

“We’ve been working to build up the Frenier area for a while now to allow for all types of activities,” Robottom said. “We want to try to make it a safer place for people to walk, to run, to ride bikes. The signage is a big first step.”

Main Street (Remy Drive to Farm Road) Water Outage/Boil Water

Hello. This is a message from the St. John Parish Utilities Department. The St. John the Baptist Parish District #3 Water System will be making potable water improvements tomorrow in the Main Street area. As a result, Remy Drive to Farm Road  will lose water pressure for 2 to 4 hours beginning at 8 am Thursday, May 25  As a precaution, the Water System in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Health has issued a Boil Water Advisory for all water customers who lost water pressure. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until lifted by the St. John the Baptist Parish Utilities Department. The Utilities Department will lift the Boil Water Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals-Office of Public Health that the water samples collected from the area are safe. It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation by boiling water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise. You will be notified when the Boil Water Advisory is lifted. Thank you for your patience.
