The Vermillion parish police jury closed access to the piers on Highway 82. Back in April of this year we put together a small team of concerned business owners and parish residences to go remove trash from the piers. We cleaned all four piers with six people. It is being brought to our attention they are in need of cleaning again. We are going out on This Saturday June 22nd to remove as much trash as possible from those piers. We are looking for volunteers to simply help pick up the trash that is presently out there. Any help would be greatly welcomed. For those interested in helping you can contact Gimnick Enterprises LLC. based in Erath via Facebook. As we set a time and meeting place later today we will post it here on topix as well.

Thank you.

The vermilion parish police jury had asked for bids to fix the piers on 82 to be submitted by end of business Friday June 28th. The police jury will meet on Monday july 1st to discuss many topics. There is a possibility that the piers and possible adoption of piers could be on the agenda. After Monday the next possible date for the piers to brought up is Wen. July 10 of 2013. I will be at the Monday meeting.

Thank you for everyone's support. We have made a couple of the abbeville newspapers in the last couple weeks.

Thank you to all volunteers

The VPpj received bids and are moving forward with the lowest bidder. The lowest bidder will be starting repairs in the near future on all four piers. There is a meeting on July 10 2013 at 530 pm. I know for a fact that the involvement of Gimnick Enterprises LLC and Bkt designs has helped this become a reality. Also the two companies would have had a lot more work I front of them if not for the concerned citizens that have been helping with the clean ups. Thanks again to Mr. Milton Mitchell and his family who have been a great help. I would also like to thank those of you who have been supportive in other ways. I appreciate those of you on here who have supported the cause since the beginning, many thanks!
