City council studies parking, garbage & loose dogs I iili ......... Expert Welding Co BRIAN ;.:.: BARRINGER Staff Report The Ponchatoula City Council agreed to study plans to spend $40,000 on garbage pickup equip- ment, decided to ask the police jury's Drainage District to clear out some troublesome clogs in the drainage canal in the Millville area, and considered extending the railroad parking area for cummuters. Councilman Dave Perkins was the one who suggested buying a loading device for city dumpster which he said could be operated by one or two workers, thereby freeing up city employees for other tasks. The device is used by the City of Hammond. The council agreed to study the idea at its official "work session" meeting Thursday, an official meeting under the state's Open Meetings Law and therefor open to the public. Perkins also asked that the drain- age ditch from Kathleen Street to the interstate be cleaned by the Drainage District, which is responsible for its upkeep. Poor drainage is a recurring problem among Perkins' Millville constituents. The Councilman Roy McKenzie intro- duced the idea of placing culverts in the ditches on either side of the ICG railroad in the 300 block of S.E. Railroad Avenue in order to provide more space for local car pooling cummuters. This too was put off until the "work session" for further a:tion. In other business, the council voted to support legislation which would limit the city's vulnerability to law- suits: approved conditionally the east side streets recently completed; credited themselves for operating what councilmen say is a successful drainage program by cooperating On the use of the city equipment needed; and Councilman Julian Dufreche says he wants Chief Ernest Peltier to "look into the mandatory vaccination of dogs" in the city. Engineer Bob Zabbia told the coun- cil that this week will mark the start of actual construction in the state project to widen La. 22 West from the interstate to downtown Ponchatoula. Zabbia said that workmen will start the job by moving the water lines, a task he indicated should not disrupt traffic.
