Calcasieu Parish Police Jury Approves Drainage Plan

Plan will go into effect in June

Post Date:03/13/2019

The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury voted at its March 21 meeting to approve a plan to consolidate the seven existing drainage districts into two – one in East Calcasieu and one in West Calcasieu. The Jury appointed a five-member board in each district.

A bill has been filed in the Louisiana Legislature to allow each district two additional members - bringing the total to seven board members per district.

The plan will take effect June 24.
