St. John Parish to hold Public Meeting for Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
In accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 and to be eligible for certain federal hazard mitigation project grants, St. John the Baptist Parish is in the beginning stages of updating its hazard mitigation plan and is holding a public meeting to incorporate comments into the plan. The public meeting will be held on Thursday, September 10, 2015 from 1:30pm - 2:30 pm in the St. John the Baptist Council Chambers. The Council Chambers is located inside the Percy Hebert Government Building at 1801 W. Airline Hwy in LaPlace.
Residents are also encouraged to participate in a survey about public perceptions and opinions regarding natural hazards in the parish. The survey results will be used in the development of the plan. This short web-based survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/StJohnHMP .
Fleming will be making repairs to the lift station on Indigo Pwky. During construction, one lane on Indigo will be closed.
Motorists will be able to detour around the lane closure.
Residents will have access to their driveways but should expect some noise during the project between the hours of 7 am – 5 pm.
During the lift station repair process,due to the sheet piling being put in, a power line was inevitably disconnected. As a result four street lights are out from Woodland to the lift station on Indigo. We apologize for the inconvenience and as soon as the installation is complete and deemed safe, the street lights will be repaired. For safety reasons, the lights can not be repaired until the sheet piling is complete and the repairs are complete. The St. John Sheriff's Office is aware and will be making extra patrols in the area during this time.
