When is bridge construction on Hayes Road expected to be completed?
I wish someone would take care of "Devil's Pond" in City Park. It's disgusting, looks like a toxic waste dump.
I live in Timberstone Estates. I have been told since 8/17/19 that our storm debris would be picked up in 2 weeks. I was told by Kay that it would be picked up by September 5. We are going into October and my debris is still in my yard and the grass is growing up and around it and I can't get to it. When will it be picked up?
Several weeks ago I sent a letter to the editor of the Iberian questioning why the parish didn't provide sandbags to the people outside of town, as the city does for its citizens. What is the council and the president planning to do about this?
Can someone please explain why it is not acceptable to bring a cell phone into the courthouse??
Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard would like to announce the latest from NWS From the NWS in Lake Charles: The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a broad area of low pressure in the southwestern Caribbean. There is a low 20% chance for tropical development as we head towards this weekend as this system drifts to the north.
Why don't you get rid of the murderers in you sheriff's department; and that sheriff who aids in the coverup?
How long does it ordinarily take for mosquito control to spray when a request is made? I made a request a few weeks ago and I do not think that anyone has come.
ATTENTION ALL CUSTOMERS OF WATERWORKS DISTRICT #3 OF IBERIA PARISH WATERWORKS DISTRICT #3 OF IBERIA PARISH is experiencing problems with their water supply causing a boil advisory to be issued. Due to the low pressure, water distributed by the WATERWORKS DISTRICT #3 OF IBERIA PARISH is of questionable microbiological quality. As a precaution, the Water System is issuing a BOIL ADVISORY, effective immediately. It will remain in effect until rescinded by WATERWORKS DISTRICT #3 OF IBERIA PARISH. It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it (including fountain drinks), making ice, brushing teeth, or using it for food preparation or rinsing of foods by the following means: Boil water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. (The flat taste can be eliminated by shaking the water in a clean bottle, pouring it from one clean container to another, or by adding a small pinch of salt to each quart of water that is boiled.) Your bill will indicate if you are served by Waterworks District #3. This district's service area is generally described as the area West of Old Spanish Trail, South of Captain Cade Road, North of Jefferson Island Road, and East of Guillotte Road.
