The TECHE Project would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for St. Landry Parish President Bill Fontenot. We recently found out that Mr. Fontenot announced his resignation from the parish president’s office to focus on health issues. In the 3 terms that he has served as parish president, Mr. Fontenot was an avid and continual supporter of The TECHE Project and our mission to make the Bayou Teche Watershed a cleaner and healthier environment in which to live and recreate. He championed our quest to get Bayou Teche listed as both a National Paddle Trail and a National Water Trail, and he was always willing to grant parish support to our cleanup efforts and our projects. We could not have built the Port Barre Paddle Trail access dock and restored the bank-line in Port Barre and Leonville without his contributions. (He is pictured here on the left with Port Barre Mayor Gil Savoy.)

We thank Bill for everything he has done for us and we know that Bayou Teche is a better place today because of his efforts.

With kindest regards, The TECHE Project Council.

I only pray to GOD that the tenants of the apartments don’t make a new pile there before the storms come Please Mayor Freddie DeCourt, get a resolution passed to FINE THE APARTMENT OWNERS FIR THIS That is ILLEGAL DUMPING
Where and when can we pick up sandbags in City??
Is this the new New Iberia City Dump At the corner of Wayne Street and Parkview Drive behind the old Charlie’s Drive Inn There is SO MUCH DEBRIS that will be flying during these storms I think the City of New Iberia has a RESPONSIBILITY to the residents near this TRASH PILE to get it all removed prior to these storm and send the bill to the owners of the apoartments which is where it all comes from and to make the owners put a DUMPSTER On their OWN property FOR THEIR RENTERS TO THROW THEIR TRASH I WILL BE FOLLOWING UP THIS POST WITH THE Mayor Freddie DeCourt tomorrow morning FIRST THING This is an ON GOING PROBLEM with the residents of those apoartments since they were built
Please bring back online streaming of City Council meetings. There should be a way for citizens to see what is going on without going to the meetings in person.
Does anyone know when DMV will reopen??
Please check your messages.
With a heavy heart and embarrassment I am writing to see if anyone knows of any food banks or churches in the new Iberia area that would help me out with some groceries to put into my house so my family can eat? I lost my job right before the covid 19 outbreak and now can’t find one and my fiancé is in the midst of maybe having to lose his. We are very humble people and we NEVER ask for help but he simply can’t do it on his own at 8.25/hr even at 6 days a week. Just like many, we lived paycheck to paycheck but we were making it. Now we find ourselves wondering how we will eat the next day. I just cooked our last pack of meat for lunch and hopefully it will see through to supper also. So, I’m peaceful begging if anyone knows of anywhere, I’d really appreciate it. I absolutely HATE having to ask for a handout because we are usually the ones helping those in need, but now we are in need just like so many of these other families. God Bless each and everyone of you and I pray this cycle ends soon for all of us. I’m also writing this and he has no idea because if he did, I would NEVER hear the end of it. But we need help right now and we are still helping others in ANY way that we can. Thanks.
Come on Louisiana we can do this😊 I was challenged to place 2 students this week y’all help me complete my challenge and the students dreams come true all at the same time😊 Who would love to host a wonderful, most amazing student.
