District 5 council member Benny Rousselle reworded his resolution that would send the Plaquemines Port Harbor & Terminal District into a lawsuit against the Belle Chasse Bridge project. Instead of litigation, the resolution now allows Plaquemines Parish Council Attorney Dannie Garrett to represent the port authority in a new round of negotiations involving the Belle Chasse Bridge.
South Plaquemines Elementary School hosted a spirit week on Sept. 8-11. While all of the days were a success, the favorite was dress like a superhero. The faculty and students came decked out in first responder uniforms (the most popular attire) to show their appreciation for so many who risked and continue to risk their lives to save others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
