BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Discussions happened this week that could speed up the cleanup process more than a month after Hurricane Barry lashed the southeastern Louisiana coast.
East Baton Rouge council members could set aside an additional $1.6 million towards debris clean up contracts. These contracts would go toward continuing cleanup of an estimated 100,000 cubic yards of debris left behind by Hurricane Barry.
The city also wants to remind residents to not put woody waste (tree branches, grass, etc.) in garbage cans or recycling bins.
