Mayor Landrieu Talks Money

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 8:27 PM

Residents of City Council District E can put in their 2 cents about how the city should spend its money at a community meeting in the Lower 9th Ward tonight from 6:30 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) to 8 p.m. at Martin Luther King Charter School (1617 Caffin Ave.). Mayor Mitch Landrieu and District E Councilman Jon Johnson organized the meeting, which also will include Police Chief Ronal Serpas, New Orleans Fire Department Supt. Charles Parent, city deputy mayors and department heads.

Read Matt Davis’ Aug. 3 blog post about the first District E community meeting held Aug. 2 at House of Faith in eastern New Orleans to see what concerns were voiced and how Landrieu responded.
The mayor has planned a series of community meetings in various districts during August as part of his stated commitment to seeking public input concerning how New Orleans is rebuilt and the challenges it faces with $67 million in red ink. Stay tuned for a schedule of other meetings.
Ryan Berni, the mayor's press secretary, says Landrieu plans to release a calendar of future community meetings tomorrow.
