Are you sick of the drainage issue when it rains in Lake Charles? Well, this is a meeting you may want to attend on Tuesday, December 5, 2017.

According to a City of Lake Charles media release, "Mayor Nic Hunter will hold a press conference at City Hall to discuss a proactive approach to drainage improvements throughout the City. The approach is multi-faceted and involves capital investments, infrastructure repairs, and public partnerships." 

The press conference will begin at 10 a.m. on the 10th floor of City Hall, at 326 Pujo Street.

Drainage has really become an issue here in SWLA in the most recent years, and it's due in part because of the new construction that's taking place in the area, amongst other underlying issues such as much need updates to our infrastructure. I hear people complain about our drainage issue all of the time, well here's the opportunity to be apart of the proposed solution instead of complaining about it on Facebook. This is also your opportunity to maybe ask some much-needed questions.
