Mayor Watts Gives City Update at CCA Forum

By  |

    The Mayor spoke to a nearly full room of community members at Tuesday’s Central Community Alliance public forum.  Mayor Watts covered a broad spectrum of issues, including sales taxes (down 2% from last year, but not far from projections), the Census (an appeal for the city is not out of the question, but numbers and costs need to be researched further), and construction around Central (BREC parks, four-laning Sullivan Road, and the rise of new homes being built here).    Councilmen DeJohn, Messina, Washington, and Moak were all in attendance at the meeting as well, and Councilman DeJohn gave an update on Cooking in Central.  Councilman Messina reminded the citizens that, even though the parish or state owns many of the roads in Central, those entities can be called about road work problems.  The video of the meeting, which was full of useful information, can soon be found online at www.CentralSpeaks.com under CentralSpeaksTV.

    The next CCA forum will be in May.  Anyone who is holding summer camps or similar activities for kids in Central is welcome to attend to share what they have to offer.  Parents are encouraged to come to this meeting if they are looking for activities for cheir children this summer.  The CCA will not hold forums in June or July, as many people will be travelling or scheduling other activities during that time.
