NOAH’s Site is Sunk

Posted By on Fri, Jul 25, 2008 at 2:38 PM

 

The New Orleans Affordable Homeownership website that boasted up until yesterday a home remediation program for the elderly and low-income homeowners is no more. Thanks to E over at WeCouldBeFamous  for alerting the blogosphere to this new piece of information.

Whoever managed the website didn’t really keep up with NOAH’s gutting services. Up until its recent demise, the site offered the home remediation program and had an online application for it even though, according the city’s Office of Recovery Development and Administration, the program was suspended in July of 2007

So who was it that registered the website’s domain name for NOAH Inc.? 

It was none other than Trellis Smith the owner of EC Advertising. According to its website, EC Advertising is a successful firm with a capable staff including Amelia Dawsey, a former NOAH staffer, and one Stacey Jackson. Is this the same Stacey Jackson, who formerly headed up NOAH?

What the EC website fails to mention is that this isn’t Trellis Smith’s only connection to NOAH. Smith owns Parish-Dubuclet Services Inc., which is one of the contractors that NOAH used for its home remediation program. And if you’re keeping score, Parish Dubuclet’s name appears on both the wrong NOAH list and the Mayor’s “list that counts."
