Lafayette Live: Trash In Drainage System, Minority Affairs
Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory joins Acadiana's Morning News every Thursday to take your calls about local government. He continues a 12-year-old tradition started by former Mayor-President Joel Durel and Bernadette lee.
Episode four started on the topic of the litter and trash in our drainage system. Josh wanted to stress that trash ends up in the Vermilion River. CAO Cydra Wingerter said a renewed effort to paint storm drains aims to raise awareness that storm drains go directly into the drainage systems. The information is included in a release from Lafayette Consolidated Government.
The Storm Drain Art Contest is back for its third year! Lafayette Consolidated Government’s (LCG) Environmental Quality (EQ) Division has partnered with local organizations to create the Storm Drain Art contest. This contest is a way to educate the public on the issue of storm drain pollutants while also creating unique public art. EQ plans to collaborate with local artists to paint select storm drains in honor of one of Lafayette’s greatest natural resources, the Vermilion River.
