Got trash pick up? Use this form!

Friday’s meeting of the joint committee looking into the Sanitation Mess was lively indeed. And it will be continued next Tuesday (more on that shortly). We saw clearly that the contractors have no way of tracking who has/has not had trash picked up.

Joe G’s office has sent out this form, to help keep track of who has not had trash pickup since the storm. Please make use of it!

“Following today’s meeting, we would like to keep a running list of residents who have not yet received trash collection since Hurricane Ida. The intent is to collect and share this data daily with Sanitation, Richard’s, Metro, and Empire to reenforce the urgency of this issue. We would greatly appreciate it if you would share this form with your neighborhood residents. We will also be sharing this form on social media shortly. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions. Thank you.”

Change to At-large Candidates Zoom Call

We’re cancelling this previously-scheduled Zoom call, due to the after effects of Hurricane Ida: power outages (still), emotional exhaustion, settling in of those who evacuated, settling in and restocking for those who are only now getting back their power, and so on.

Instead, we strongly recommend attending the 25 Sept Zoom forum that Together Louisiana is setting up. As soon as I have the registration link, I’ll share it.
