Lafourche Parish Councilwoman Luci Sposito hosted a Town Hall Meeting at the Bayou Boeuf Fire Station on May 23 designed to give local residents an update on local flood protection projects being conducted by the North Lafourche Levee District.
NLLD Executive Director Dwayne Bourgeois and
Project Manager Arthur Ostheimer made presentations on the
Zeller/Larousse Project in Kraemer, the Bayou Rond Pom Pon Levee Maintenance Project, and surveying for a proposed backwater project in West Choupic.
Lafourche Parish Director of Public Works James Barnes and project engineer Leonard Chauvin also participated in the meeting.
"It was great to have so many local residents come out to hear about the work being done to protect their homes and businesses, and we value their questions and suggestions," said Bourgeois. "We also thank Councilwoman Sposito for hosting the town hall meeting and bringing us all together to talk about our local flood control efforts."
