I was contacted recently by Carolyn Lesieur with the Louisiana Watershed Initiative (LWI). The LWI has scheduled an outreach meeting with Evangeline and Allen Parishes for Tuesday, April 30th from 10:00 – 11:30 am in Ville Platte, LA (Evangeline Parish Courthouse, 200 Court St #104, Ville Platte, LA 70586). I will be in attendance. Additionally, the LWI proposes a meeting with Jefferson Davis and Acadia Parishes at 2pm on Tuesday, April 30th in Jennings, LA (Jefferson Davis Parish Police Jury, 304 N State St). I hope you all can attend.
I do not know the formal agenda of these meetings. I attended the 3/28 LWI Council Meeting in Baton Rouge. There were presentations from staff to the board members; and a presentation from Dewberry regarding the Amite River Modelling efforts. There is no news, however, on the anticipated delivery of the Federal Registry which will provide the details on the use of the federal funds. Hopefully, we will all receive an update on those topics on 4/30. I look forward to seeing you all there.
