Zachary park could become disaster relief staging area

ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - A new staging area in the event of a disaster could be coming to Zachary, thanks to a big federal grant.

The Zachary Youth Park was damaged during Hurricane Gustav in 2008. But there's a 1.4 million dollar grant that could help fund repairs at the park, and turn it into a disaster staging area.
A public hearing must be held before a final vote of the council can be taken.
