A host of government officials from St. John the Baptist Parish and Tangipahoa, including St. John Parish President Natalie Robottom, were on hand to mark the occasion, along with several project organizers.

“We’ve been working to build up the Frenier area for a while now to allow for all types of activities,” Robottom said. “We want to try to make it a safer place for people to walk, to run, to ride bikes. The signage is a big first step.”

Monday, March 27 - Water Outage/Boil Water Advisory - East 26th and 27th , Reserve

This is a message from the St. John Utilities Department. The contractor working on the drainage project in your area will be making improvements on East 26th St and East 27th St. Monday, March 27. This outage will allow them to relocate a hydrant and hopefully tie in a needed line on East 26th Street for drainage upgrades. Beginning at 8 am Monday, residents in this area will be without water pressure for 3 to 4 hours. Please boil water when water is restored until you are told not to. Bring water to a rolling boil for one minute before eating or drinking.
