Trash Collection Suspended Friday Due to Hurricane Delta

Residents Advised to Secure Containers, Bags, Bulk Items and Yard Waste Before Storm

Due to Hurricane Delta, Republic Services will be suspending collection services on Friday, October 9, 2020 and until such time when storm damage assessments can be made to determine when operations may resume.

Republic Services reminds area residents and businesses to properly secure waste and recycling containers before the storm. Recommended tips:
• Move waste and recycling containers, and any bagged waste, bulk items, and yard waste, from the curbside out of streets, parking lots and right-of-way areas so they don't become a hazard during high winds, heavy rain or severe flooding.
• Secure containers, bagged, and bulky items in a garage, under a carport or behind your residence, whenever possible, until after the storm. If containers cannot be moved to a safe area, secure them to a fence, tree or other heavy object.
• Close container lids to prevent rain from filling the container or wind from scattering debris.
• Commercial customers with containers in corrals should latch and secure corral doors, and remember locks if you normally use them, to prevent any potential hazards.
Republic Services thanks customers for their cooperation during this event. We will provide updates as conditions change moving forward.

Is the water off in St. Martinville? Its 3"04 AM 11/18/19/....no water by Cajun Chef
I believe we have one of the prettiest downtowns around! However, I have noticed that when you park on Main Street to go to one of the businesses, you have to step in mud to get to them! There should be some way that this can be addressed.
The Opelousas Walgreens is offering Veterans free flu shots! No appointment is needed. Pharmacy hours are Monday through Friday 7am-11pm. Saturday’s and Sunday’s 9am-9pm. Come see us!
Call or text me anytime..3373392401
Anyone know how long it'll be before power is restored in the downtown area?
I want to take time to give a special shout out to Officer Guidry with the St. Martinville Police Department. This outstanding citizen took the time out of his busy shift to help fill sandbags for the elderly people of St. Martinville. If you see him today, or any other day for that matter, thank this man for his generosity. Side note .... it is an election year St. Martin parish. During the three hours that I spent helping fill sandbags, not one time did I see any elective official or candidate lift a finger to help their citizens. In fact, I saw one candidate inside a grocery store. After making the comment of officials neglecting the elderly and non-able bodied persons of not only the city, but the entire parish, this candidate stayed silent and walked out of the store, in which I'm sure he went back to his home to relax in the AC. Pay attention people to the personnel helping the parish, and those that are completely ignoring humanity and wanting to be elected. Yall stay safe during this time of bad weather.
Can someone advise me regarding Trash Pick Up? Which can do we use this week? (Pelican or Waste Management)
This summer marks the 300th anniversary of the arrival of Jonathan Darby to New Orleans. Jonathan helped establish and lead the Cantillon Concession. To celebrate this milestone anniversary of his arrival, we are having a Darby 300th Family Reunion next month in New Iberia, June 21-23. We’re hoping to connect with the thousands of his descendants to share in the experience. If you are one of the many, we'd love to have you be a part of this one-of-a-kind gathering! For more information and to register before the deadline, visit our website. You can also join the conversation on our page (darby300). We’d love you to add your name to our ever-growing family tree!
Is the water off in st Martinville out by Cajun Chef?
I ride my bicycle around town and today I rode around Adam Carlson Park. This time I got off of my bike and walked around the two areas that are listed as Baseball Fields, I can understand why kids or adults don't use these two fields.Firstly, they don't qualify, or should I say, should not qualify as baseball fields because of the deplorable condition of the grounds. The building which is supposed to be a concession stand is leaning at 15 degree angle and is in need of repair, but why bother, it isn't used. I continued on back to the big building where the Zydeco Festivals used to be held. The Rest Rooms there are deplorable. Drainage pipes have been installed on the West and East side of the building, but the dirt work is not finished. The drains into these pipes need to be adjusted to meet grade for proper drainage. Moving on I stopped to check out one of the new Pavilions, There is a stub out pipe for future electricity and one for water. I then rode on to Magnolia Park. The new Pavilions there are the same. The Skate Park is in excellent condition, I don't know who or how many kids us it. The huge building that was to be a roller rink building has water on the slab. I didn't notice if lights and electrical receptacles are available. I can't say much about the Rest Rooms near the Bayou or near the Base Ball field, and I must say that is a state of the art baseball field. Water faucets need some water.
