I don't know about situation on corretta drive and I'm not an engineer but I can tell you I've been traveling the new wal mart road (memorial drive) since it's completion almost everyday via bicycle. Worst pave job I've ever seen. There is no way this road is up to spec. You can visibly see the gravel at the surface. I don't give this road two years if another layer is not overlaid properly.
Where are the city inspectors?
The taxpayers deserve no less than their moneys worth.
I guess this is why the contractors have the entrance blocked with heavy machinery, so the general public will have no idea until it's too late. If you don't believe me, park your vehicle on the side of the civic center road and take a walk on the new road!
The city shares irresponsibility.

I think the police jury members should be the ones to pay for any sewage problems seeing as they are the biggest producers of $h!+ around here.

I have never seen a group of Police Jurors that are so disrespected as this group is. All of them! No one is happy with them and certainly no one trusts any of them. Nobody is going to tell them to their faces how they feel, but they sure are talking around the parish. Anyone wanting to run for Police Jury in 2015, now is the time to start, just be sure you can stand up and above those presently in the seat.

No, because people keep voting for their guy. It's just like the U.S. Congress. They are hated as a group, but everybody loves their guy. That's why everything stays the same. If you really want to see change, stop voting for incumbants. All of them.
