From the Bossier Parish Police Jury:
Mother Nature has taken center stage again in Bossier Parish, and police jury highway department workers are busy cleaning up the aftermath of another round of inclement weather that rolled through last week.
Parish Engineer Butch Ford says crews are getting to areas where damage is heaviest and trying to finish cleanup operations as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Quoting Ford, “Public Works Director Mark Coutee has been getting to them as quickly as we can. We’re taking calls from people with all kinds of debris and putting them in order. We’re doing the things that are crucial right now, but we will get to everyone.”
Ford further states that highway department crews will pick up any debris from fallen trees and limbs that homeowners place on the roadside. He reminded residents that public employees are prohibited by law from working on private property.
Coutee says his work crews have already hauled away 40, 12-yard dump truck loads of debris and there’s still plenty of work to do. “We have probably another week to go at least” he said.
