St. Tammany Parish Moves into Phase III — St. Tammany Rental Assistance Program Update

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced today that St. Tammany Parish is now in Phase III.

“Simply by doing their part, our citizenry directly contributed to our movement into Phase III, as we saw a sustained decrease in positive cases and hospitalizations. We want to see this trend continue through perseverance in taking personal responsibility, wearing a mask, social distancing and staying home when feeling ill. If you are eligible for the vaccine and wish to receive it, please get it at the first opportunity,” President Cooper said.

In Phase III, the majority of businesses, including restaurants and salons, will be able to open at 75 percent of their capacity; indoor gatherings and event centers will be capped at 50 percent of their capacity but limited to 250 people; religious services will no longer have capacity limits; social distancing is strongly encouraged and masking will still be required; and bars in all parishes will be able to open for indoor service at 25 percent capacity, not to exceed 250 people. Bars in parishes where the percent positivity is 5 percent or lower for two consecutive weeks may have indoor service at 50 percent capacity, not to exceed 250 people. St. Tammany’s percent positivity is currently 6.90, according to numbers released Wednesday, March 2, 2021, from the Louisiana Department of Health.

Wap xổ số miền bắc“We know that our citizens need this funding, and we are moving forward to put all of the components in place to roll out our program to make it available to them. We feel it is important for the public to be aware of our progress and have an avenue to pose questions,” President Cooper said. “When the final details are complete and we begin to accept applications, we will make a public announcement.”

Rental assistance provided to an eligible household must not be duplicative of any other federally funded rental assistance provided to such household. Beginning in early April, 2021, the St. Tammany Rental Assistance Program (STRAP) will begin accepting applications for the following households:

St. Tammany Parish Government Saves Over $2 Million to Date Through New Approach to Projects

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper has changed the way district infrastructure projects are initiated in St. Tammany through bundling district road projects in close proximity to save money. Four separate projects initiated in 2020 and implemented using the bundling approach produced a combined cost savings of $2,067,640.40. Because of this immense return and successful implementation, all district road packages will utilize this new model going forward.

Wap xổ số miền bắc“Saving money at the start of each project simply by using this new approach — grouping projects in the same area — means we have more money available to invest in the next project,” said Mike Cooper, St. Tammany Parish President. “Our infrastructure investments are worth every dollar we spend.

President Cooper worked closely with the St. Tammany Parish Council, the Department of Public Works, the Department of Engineering, and the Department of Procurement to implement the new process.

Wap xổ số miền bắcAs we head into the Mardi Gras holiday weekend, St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper is relying on each and every St. Tammany resident to take personal responsibility, and heed the advice of medical professionals to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Phase II of St. Tammany Fishing Pier Underway – Spring Opening Pushed Back

The long-awaited expansion of the St. Tammany Fishing Pier in Slidell is now fully under construction. The annual spring opening of the Pier — usually March 1st — is pushed back this year as construction crews from STEELE-R Development, LLC, will need to travel the first span to complete their work on the Phase II expansion. The spring opening is slated for late April or early May of 2021, barring any construction delays.

COVID-19 Updates January 19, 2021

COVID-19 Updates January 19, 2021

COVID-19 Vaccine Information from the
Health Department: 298 vaccine providers in all 64 parishes will receive COVID vaccine this week

These providers – including 150 chain pharmacies, 112 independent pharmacies, 19 federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), 3 rural health clinics (RHCs), and an additional 14 healthcare sites – represent all nine public health regions and 64 parishes of the state.

While the state was able to resupply the majority of providers that received COVID vaccine doses last week, future distribution is dependent on vaccine made available to the state, among other factors. To stress, there is no guarantee that providers receiving vaccine this week will receive vaccine in the future. 

Wap xổ số miền bắc These vaccines will be available only for those in Phase 1B, Tier 1: 

  • Persons ages 70 years or older
  • Outpatient clinic providers and clinic staff
  • Urgent care clinic providers and staff
  • Community care clinic providers and staff
  • Behavioral health clinic providers and staff
  • Dialysis providers and clients 
  • Home health service providers, direct support workers and recipients including people with disabilities over 16
  • Dental providers and staff
  • Ambulatory care providers and staff, including members of coroner, autopsy, or mortuary teams.
  • Students, residents, faculty and staff of allied health schools

Participating providers must make available vaccine available to anyone who is eligible. Failure to do so will inform future decisions about distribution.   

LDH has published the list of participating providers, along with their locations and contact information, on its website: .

In addition, residents can call 211 to find a vaccine provider near them.

Eligible residents must contact a participating provider and make an appointment with them. Patients who arrive without an appointment will not be vaccinated. Do not arrive at a location without an appointment. LDH cannot make appointments for patients; only providers can.

The Louisiana Department of Health is coordinating the COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort in Louisiana. As more vaccines become available from the CDC, more individuals and groups will be offered a vaccination.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID. We are confident that COVID-19 vaccines will be a critical tool in ultimately ending the pandemic.

Patrons Reminded: A Portion of the Tammany Trace to Close for a Prolonged Period Beginning Monday, October 19, 2020

Patrons Reminded: A Portion of the Tammany Trace to Close for a Prolonged Period Beginning Monday, October 19, 2020

Tammany Trace patrons are reminded that a portion of the Tammany Trace will close beginning Monday, October 19, 2020, from the southern edge of the Little Creek bridge — to the northern edge of the Koop Drive Loop — approximately 560 feet. The closure is part of the I-12 widening project in partnership with the DOTD. Patrons will have access to the Tammany Trace at Dove Park, and at the Koop Drive Trailhead, however, there will be no access between these two points on the Trace.

“The safety of citizens is the most important reason for this closure. There will be overhead construction with heavy equipment and concrete, as well as equipment staging in the closure area, and we want to ensure this area is free from pedestrian and bicycle traffic for that reason,” said Mike Cooper, St. Tammany Parish President. “We thank citizens for their understanding and ask for your help in raising awareness about the closure.”

“We are asking citizens to have patience as we work on this project. We asked for this closure, and felt it was necessary, so that we minimize the risk to Trace Patrons as we work overhead. We thank Parish Government for working with us to help secure the closure and get the word out to the community,” said Louisiana DOTD Secretary, Shawn Wilson, Ph.D.

Wap xổ số miền bắcPatrons wishing to travel to Mandeville via the Trace can access the portion of the Trace south of the closure and park in the lot adjacent to the Tammany Trace on Dove Park Road. Patrons wishing to travel to Abita Springs/Covington via the Tammany Trace can access the Trace north of the closure and park at the Koop Drive Trailhead to access the Trace there. The safety of St. Tammany citizens while this project proceeds is paramount, and as such, there will be no way to utilize the entire length of the Trace on this stretch while the closure is underway. Parish Government suggests using the access points available on the Trace to enjoy it.

Any changes will be updated through our websites: eofficemate.com, and  . Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Bars may open under the following guidelines:

  1. Bars may reopen and offer tableside service only. Standing and bar service will be prohibited.

St. Tammany Parish President Introduces Proposed 2021 Operating and Capital Budgets

St. Tammany Parish Government Introduces Proposed 2021 Operating and Capital Budgets

On Thursday, October 1, 2020, the St. Tammany Parish Council introduced two ordinances for adoption of the proposed 2021 Parish Operating Budget, and the proposed 2021 Parish Capital Improvement Budget. President Cooper has outlined in his budget several key initiatives including: the streamlining of public services to increase efficiency, save money, and better serve St. Tammany citizens; the restoration of trust between Parish Government and citizens through increased transparency and access to public officials; the update of the current comprehensive plan — last updated in 1999; and the creation of partnerships with local and State leaders on issues that impact all citizens, including infrastructure and economic development.

“When I took the oath of office at the beginning of this year, I committed to providing a more streamlined and responsive government, to place sensible controls on unbridled development and avoid mistakes of the past, and to use our public monies wisely and efficiently on priorities which address our basic and most pressing needs,” said Cooper. “This year’s budget reflects the continued effort to improve the financial accountability of Parish Government and to meet the service demands of our citizens and the infrastructure needs of our Parish. Considering the economic uncertainties in our parish, our state, our nation, and our world, in the foreseeable future due to COVID-19, the proposed budget is conservative and fiscally prudent.”

The 2021 Budget, was prepared by St. Tammany Parish Chief Financial Officer, Leslie Long and staff under the direction of St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper. According to the October 1, 2020 St. Tammany Parish Council agenda, the Parish Council will hold a public hearing in Council Chambers at 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, 2020 to review the proposed Operating and Capital Improvement Budgets prior to adoption. The Parish’s paperless version of the proposed budgets is available for review online at the St. Tammany Parish Government website at this link.

Infrastructure Investment of Nearly $800,000 to Begin Soon in Black River Estates in the Madisonville Area

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced that a bridge replacement project on Black River Drive in Black River Estates subdivision in the Madisonville area will begin November 2, 2020. This $759,582 investment is expected to be complete in May of 2021.

Residents who live North of the Bridge on Black River Drive and visitors to Black River Estates who wish to get to this area, should plan to use an alternate route.  Access through Black River Drive from Highway 22, beginning November 2, 2020 will be open only to residents who live South of the Bridge.

St. Tammany Parish President Prevails Upon Citizens to Continue to Practice COVID-19 Prevention

St. Tammany Parish President Prevails Upon Citizens to Continue to Practice COVID-19 Prevention

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper is asking citizens to continue to exercise best mitigation practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 so that St. Tammany can continue to move forward.

“I am urging people to continue to wear masks in public, physically distance, and avoid large gatherings to prevent an increase in positive cases and to bring our percent positive case numbers down. We are in Phase 3 — our children are back in school, businesses are opening up at greater capacity, and we are starting to see things slowly return to a sense of normalcy, however, our percent positivity rate remains above 5%, which means our bars cannot yet open under the Governor’s criteria,” Cooper said. “I am asking citizens to help us bring this number down by doing the things medical professionals advise to slow the spread. It’s our goal to continue to balance the health of our community with the health of our economy.”

St. Tammany Parish Government employees have returned to Parish Government offices in Phase 3, and Parish Government, like many establishments, can operate at 75% of total occupancy. Cooper said provisions are in place to accommodate employees who are most vulnerable, or who may have a medical condition that will necessitate continued remote working. St. Tammany Parish Government staff continues to meet with the public by appointment, and everyone must complete a screening process and wear a mask in order to enter Parish Government buildings.

Currently, Governor Edwards’ Phase 3 proclamation which you may review , contains the criteria for bars to reopen. St. Tammany Parish does not yet meet these criteria. The Louisiana Department of Health updates the Percent Positivity of Tests by ParishWap xổ số miền bắc numbers every Wednesday. These numbers can be found at .

President Cooper aligned his declaration with that of Governor John Bel Edwards, addressing identified establishments opening at 75% of total occupancy, a continued mask mandate and physical distancing requirements.

Statement From St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper on the 2020 Census

Statement From St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper on the 2020 Census

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper wants all St. Tammany residents to be counted in the 2020 Census. He reminds citizens there is still time to respond, and that our responses impact the future of St. Tammany.

“Census data, collected every ten years, helps determine how billions of dollars in federal funding is distributed to hospitals, fire departments, and schools. It determines how resources are allocated for roads, and other resources in each community—including ours,” Cooper said. “The results of the Census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and your political representation at all levels off government. Please respond if you haven’t already. You still have time. Let’s make the Census count for St. Tammany.”

Wap xổ số miền bắcSt. Tammany’s current response rate is 69%, second in the State to St. Charles Parish with a response rate of 69.7 %. Anyone wishing to respond  may visit: . According to , the questionnaire takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Field data collection and online response opportunities will end September 30, 2020, according to a issued by the U.S. Census Bureau in early August, 2020.

New Leadership Brings New Vision at The St. Tammany Parish Department of Animal Services

Wap xổ số miền bắcDuring the first month of her tenure at the St. Tammany Parish Animal Shelter, Beth Brewster has implemented change, laid out her vision, and built upon initiatives that were already in place when she assumed her role.

“Beth is a natural fit for our shelter. She has a deep appreciation for our dedicated employees, she is hands-on, and she brings a fresh perspective to this department,” St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper said. “From increased play and exercise for animals, to changes in hours of operations, to continued partnerships with credible rescue groups and animal welfare non-profits, Beth has created a palpable atmosphere of renewed energy and positivity.”

Wap xổ số miền bắc“We could not have achieved these results without a great team of employees, Dr. Sandy Robbins’ dedication to our animals, and the help of our tremendous partners Wings of Rescue, Big Sky Ranch, and Denise Gutnisky of Mardi Paws,” Brewster said. “I am looking forward to what is yet to come.”

72 adoptions were finalized during the month-long, fee-waived, “Adopt and Donate,” 2020 Clear the SheltersWap xổ số miền bắc event in August. Shelter partner Mardi Paws lent a paw to this event by giving away a free backpack of Summer Lovin’ swag to everyone who adopted a cat or dog from the shelter during the event. In addition, over 200 animals have been transported through the Wings of Rescue flights in 2020.

As the shelter population decreases through adoptions, fosters, and transports, Brewster has begun the implementation of an enrichment program designed to increase play, socialize dogs in groups as well as individually, increase walking of dogs on leashes, and implement positive reinforcement training methods with treats. Additional pens are currently under construction to provide added exercise resources.  The shelter has purchased toys for the kittens, added scratching posts to the adoption room, and purchased feral cat dens for the isolation room. 

Wap xổ số miền bắcFuture initiatives set to launch include:  broadening the volunteer base; expanding the foundation of credible, compassionate rescue programs already in place; purchasing new beds for all shelter animals; educating and more greatly utilizing fosters; and the acquisition of new caging for the isolation room to increase prevention of the transfer of disease.

As part of the continued partnership with Mardi Paws, the Let the Fur FlyWap xổ số miền bắc fundraising initiative was recently announced and is underway. This effort is a partnership with Wings of Rescue and sponsors, and thus far has secured $25,000 in funding for a late - September flight for the St. Tammany Parish Department of Animal Services, and other high-intake shelters in neighboring parishes out of Top Gun Aviation at the Hammond Regional Airport. Their goal is to fund a second flight during the month of October, as well as secure funding for the purchase of much-needed items for the shelter. Anyone wishing to become a sponsor, or donate may view the link .

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper wishes to thank Mardi Paws non-profits for their continued partnership and support, Wings of Rescue, and the top Fur FlyWap xổ số miền bắc sponsors: Tito’s Handmade Vodka for Dog People, Baldwin Subaru, and The Meraux Foundation; as well as all of the sponsors who helped to fund the upcoming Wings of Rescue transport flight. See the entire list of sponsors .

Wap xổ số miền bắcPresident Cooper also wishes to thank St. Tammany Parish citizens for their continued support of the Animal Shelter through fostering, volunteering, and adopting to continue to reduce the shelter population. 

Animal Services is open for adoptions from 10 a.m. – 4p.m. Monday through Saturday.  Learn more at eofficemate.com/pets. To purchase a bed for donation to the St. Tammany Parish Animal Shelter, click .

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper Kicks off Key Initiative Through Comprehensive Plan Update

Wap xổ số miền bắcSt. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced the start of the multi-phased process to update the current comprehensive development plan — one of the key initiatives of his administration — to achieve resilient, sustainable guidelines for future growth in St. Tammany. The current plan was adopted in 1999.

“My goal is to hear the desires and concerns of citizens and business owners, and work to achieve a vision that will guide our growth and shape our community,” Cooper said. “This plan will take a comprehensive, in-depth look at the way we are developing our community now, and how we — our citizens, builders, and Parish Government —ultimately want to see development evolve into the future. It is an opportunity for every citizen to have a stake in authorship of the plan and in our future.”

The multi-phased process will address numerous factors and rely heavily on public engagement and public input. The process is designed to address several key elements including: land use, transportation, housing, stormwater impact, flooding, impacts of development on natural resources, and the affordability and sustainability of future developments. The planned outcome will achieve several objectives it will provide a factual basis for land-use decision-making; educate and inform the public; resolve points of conflict; and reduce arbitrary decision-making through establishing plan parameters. In addition to public input, the plan will also be informed by a 21-member Steering Committee comprised of seven appointed members by St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper, and 14 members (one appointee each) appointed by the St. Tammany Parish Council. The entire process to finalize a draft of the plan for a public hearing, and final presentation of a draft for adoption to all Parish governing bodies, is expected to be complete in late 2021 to early 2022.

Citizens and interested parties will be made aware of upcoming opportunities for public input, expected to begin in the late fall of 2020. All means of connection to communication about the plan and the opportunities for public input will be disseminated through eofficemate.com, St. Tammany Parish Government social media outlets, the news media, and email blasts from Parish Government.

Asakura-Robinson Consultants, as well as sub-consultants Digital Engineering and River Crossing Strategies, will spearhead and facilitate the phases of the plan, and provide a summary upon completion of the phases.

St. Tammany Demonstrates Innovative Floodgate Design – First of its Kind in the State in a Residential Area

St. Tammany Demonstrates Innovative Floodgate Design – First of its Kind in the State in a Residential Area

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced today, the completion of the installation of a FloodBreak Automatic Floodgate Mitigation System — in the Fox Hollow subdivision in the Slidell area. This gate is the first of its kind in the State of Louisiana installed in a residential neighborhood. With the installation of this gate, the gap in the levee system will now be closed during a flood event. This system requires no man power to operate, and is automatically activated by flood waters which cause the gate to rise and protect the area where the gate is installed. As the flood waters recede, the gate recedes as well. No man power is required to operate the system. When not activated, the gate lies underground, flush with the roadway, and residents simply drive over it. It is touted as a “passive, automatic flood barrier system that provides permanent and virtually invisible flood protection without human intervention or power.”

“This completion of this project will give the residents of Fox Hollow additional flood protection with the most innovative technology available, as well as additional peace of mind,” said Mike Cooper, St. Tammany Parish President. “We appreciate the help of all who advocated for this project — Councilman T.J. Smith and members of Drainage District #4. The protection of life and property during a weather event is our goal with every flood mitigation measure we put into place.”

“Water knows no boundaries and because of that we have found it necessary to protect the 1500-plus residents to help prevent them from flooding,” said T.J. Smith, St. Tammany Parish Councilman, District 14. “With the leadership of Drainage District #4, we have been able to provide an additional resource that supplements the additional five miles of levees and the pumps for this district.”

Warner Trucking is the contractor for this project, and Mike Riviere of Infinity Engineering is the engineer.  The cost of the project is $369,797.00.

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper Welcomes New Leadership at Parish Animal Shelter

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper Welcomes New Leadership at Parish Animal Shelter

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced the appointment of Beth Brewster as the new Director of Animal Services. Brewster, who has roots in St. Tammany, earned a bachelor’s degree in Agribusiness from LSU and brings to the shelter nearly 15 years of animal welfare experience. She has successfully worked with animal welfare organizations at the local, state and national levels, and she was instrumental in leading the fundraising, design and completion of the Companion Animal Alliance Shelter on the outskirts of LSU— the first animal shelter in the country built on a college campus.

“Beth comes to us with a wealth of experience, many long-standing relationships in the animal welfare community, and a passion for bringing people and pets together,” said Cooper. “I look forward to her leadership at our shelter as she joins our committed staff.”

Brewster says she looks forward to using her people and pets-oriented approach to bring the live release rate up, to increase transparency at the shelter, and to work together with the community, to improve the lives of dogs and cats in St. Tammany Parish. She says her focus will be on people as well as animals, and she will remain committed to doing everything possible to save the lives of the animals dependent on the shelter and to help families care for their pets.

President Cooper has maintained focused collaboration with veterinarians and independent, reputable, external animal welfare groups since taking office. Among his enhancements to the shelter since taking office are: the reinstatement of the positions of kennel manager and veterinary technician. He has also expanded external features at the shelter to increase square-footage of living and play areas for shelter pets. The shelter recently announced a new partnership with the Mardi Paws organization to host several initiatives to increase adoptions, expand education, and raise awareness about the shelter.

Brewster will assume her role at the Shelter beginning Monday, August 17, 2020.

St. Tammany Parish Government Partners with Business Community and Elected Officials in Mask Ask Campaign

St. Tammany Parish Government Partners with Business Community and Elected Officials in Mask Ask Campaign

 St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper has enlisted the help of local mayors, leaders in the business community, and local businesses to help him continue to spread the word and provide educational information about the importance of wearing a mask to minimize the spread of COVID-19. In what Cooper calls his Mask Ask campaign, he has partnered with the St. Tammany Corporation and the St. Tammany Chamber to produce a limited number of signs made for local business to display in their businesses. The signs are tools to increase educational awareness on why the Centers for Disease Control recommends masking to slow the spread of COVID-19. The signs are free for pick up to any business wishing to participate. They encourage citizens to take personal responsibility, and to do their parts with catchy phrases like “It’s not much to ask — wear a mask.” Rip Stoltz, President/Owner of SEI-Specialty Enhanced Imaging in Slidell, generously donated production costs as part of the Public awareness effort.

In addition, Cooper has produced television PSAs enlisting and throughout St. Tammany, asking citizens to Slow the Pace — Cover Your Face, Wap xổ số miền bắcas well as PSAs for local radio.

Wap xổ số miền bắc“People tell me all the time they want to help local businesses recover. Here’s an easy way we all can help. Wear a mask when you’re in local businesses and restaurants so you don’t unknowingly spread COVID-19. This way we can keep businesses and restaurants open,” Cooper said. “We want a healthy community where our citizens feel safe going out. We want to move forward — none of us wants to go back to Phase 1. I’ve said it before — we each have the choice to either detract from our progress or to contribute to our recovery. Let’s all choose to move toward recovery. So, it’s not much to ask — wear a mask.”

Wap xổ số miền bắc“This partnership is an easy one. Let’s work together to do the small things — like wear a mask and physically distance — so we can move our community and our economy forward,” said Chris Masingill, CEO of St. Tammany Corporation. “We all want to see recovery, and we will if we all work together to make it happen.”

“Our leadership is promoting social responsibility to end the spread of Covid-19. This is a parish-wide appeal. Every one of us, at every age and stage of life, want to move through to the other side of this pandemic,” said Lacey Osborne, CEO of the St. Tammany Chamber. “These signs are another tool our businesses can use to remind customers that the mask mandate is critical to stopping the spread as well as to rebuild our economy.”

Signs may be picked up at the locations below between the hours of 10 a.m. – 4p.m.

St. Tammany Parish Government (985) 898-5243; 21490 Koop Drive Building A

Today, St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced exciting news about events taking place during the month of August and beyond for the St. Tammany Parish Animal Shelter. The shelter gratefully welcomes as a partner Mardi Paws, the super krewe for k9s.

Projects Slated to Move Forward as St. Tammany Parish Allocated Capital Outlay Funding

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced that St. Tammany Parish will see forward movement on several significant projects as 2020-2021 Capital Outlay Funding requests were approved by the State Legislature and signed by the Governor at the close of the 2020 First Extraordinary Legislative Session.

“I want to thank our legislative delegation for advocating for St. Tammany Parish and securing this funding,” said Mike Cooper, St. Tammany Parish President. “These funds will serve the people of St. Tammany through multiple uses, and we look forward to moving these initiatives forward.”

Capital Outlay funding requires a minimum 25 % local funding match.  Among the projects funded in the 2020-2021 year are: the South Slidell Levee Protection Project, the Training and Education Center on the Safe Haven Campus, and Phase II of the St. Tammany Fishing Pier.

The South Slidell Levee Protection Project will see $750,000 in Capital Outlay Funding. This multi-segment levee project is part of Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan. It was developed by St. Tammany Parish Government and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a levee plan concept to protect south Slidell east of Norfolk Southern railroad on both sides of I-10 by blocking a tidal surge produced in a 100-year storm event. The project includes five existing levees — four of which will require raising to match proposed elevations for the entire system, three already completed segments, and the proposed construction of 16 additional segments. The anticipated use of the 2020-2021 funding will include pre-design work as well as environmental permitting and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers clearance for levee work for segments 6, which would stretch between the already completed ring levees around Lakeshore Estates and the Kingspoint subdivision, and segments 7,12, and 13 which would stretch from the existing Kingspoint ring levee to U.S. 190. Learn more about the South Slidell Levee Protection Project here.

 

The Safe Haven initiative will see multiple campus improvements move forward through $850,000 in funding. A portion of this total — approximately $500,000 —will fund the construction of the 4,000 square-foot Training and Education Center. This facility will be the first new construction on the campus since 1970 — formerly Southeast Hospital — and will provide resources for a variety of programs centered on behavioral health. It will provide a space to train various community members on how to identify and respond to these community needs. This project has been designed and is expected to go out for bid in the fall of 2020. Construction is expected to be completed by late 2021. Additional projects slated for the campus include rehabilitation and renovation of existing buildings for expansion of behavioral health services. 

Wap xổ số miền bắc$390,000 in funding was approved for Phase II of the St. Tammany Fishing Pier Offshore project. This estimated total cost of project is $1.3 million, a portion of which will be funded through a grant from the Wallop Breaux Public Access and Boating Facility through Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries in the amount of $992,0458.50.  This project includes developing the old twin spans section of the Pier, currently closed to public use; shelter structures, cleaning stations and fishing platforms, as well as the installation of guardrails, a catwalk, and exterior lighting. This 120-day project is expected to go out for bid in the fall of this year.

St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced today that based upon recommendations from St. Tammany Parish Coroner Dr. Charles Preston, as well as additional advisement from local physicians and healthcare professionals, he was preparing an Executive Order regarding masks for release Monday, July 13, 2020.

Statement from St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper on Masks

Statement from St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper on Masks

“Medical experts agree that when you wear a mask, you protect others by preventing the spread of your own germs.  Employees of businesses and restaurants who serve the public are required to wear masks through the current proclamations issued through our State, and Parish Government. 

Wap xổ số miền bắc“In the last few days, several parish and municipal leaders in southeast Louisiana have issued mandatory mask orders for the general public in the ongoing effort to protect the public from the COVID-19 pandemic.  While I respect their decisions, I have chosen not to issue such an order here in St. Tammany at this time.  I am, however, going to continue to stress to every citizen, the importance of wearing a mask in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I’m going to continue to ask that citizens, particularly those who have contact with large numbers of people wear masks. I am going to ask that patrons of our local businesses wear masks. 

Wap xổ số miền bắc“Unless the numbers warrant otherwise, I will continue to support the right of businesses to open with limited capacity, and I will support the free movement of our citizens within the guidelines of Phase 2.  I continue to ask each of us to recognize the vital importance of taking personal responsibility at this crucial time to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I want our businesses to remain open and eventually reopen fully. I want us to continue to move forward. I also want to keep St. Tammany healthy. To do all of these things, we need each and every citizen of St. Tammany to do their part. We need each and every citizen to make the commitment to be a part of the solution as we slow the spread of this virus.

“I continue to gather expert medical opinions and data to make decisions on what is best for St. Tammany.  I ask each and every citizen to continue to maintain physical distancing, avoid large gatherings, wash their hands frequently and please — wear a mask. I trust each and every citizen of St. Tammany will do their part to keep our community and our economy healthy.”

Statement From St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper on the St. Tammany Parish Department of Animal Services

We are aware of the stories circulating on Social Media about our St. Tammany Parish Animal Shelter. Many residents have contacted us with their concerns as well. I have personally spoken with many people who have voiced their concerns. Since taking office, I have been gathering information regarding all Parish Government Departments. At Animal Services, I have been evaluating their processes and protocols, addressing staffing needs, and learning about where deficiencies may exist to identify areas that need improvement as we work to finalize our Strategic Plan. As a result, changes will be forthcoming soon for the benefit of the welfare of the animals at the shelter, the dedicated employees, and St. Tammany Parish as a whole. I have been committed to making changes and I recognize there are deficiencies that must be addressed.  These are the changes that are already in progress:

Shortly after taking office, I authorized an independent animal welfare group to visit and evaluate the Shelter and make recommendations. While this visit was originally scheduled for May, it was pushed back due to COVID-19. This visit will take place within the next few weeks.

We are actively seeking a new Director of Animal Services as part of our plan moving forward to address staffing. This appointed position is posted on our website to fill the current vacancy. I invite qualified candidates to apply.

I have been seeking input from local veterinarians, animal welfare groups, and invested parties into how we can improve operations at the Shelter and we are reviewing best practices from other public Animal Shelters to determine if there are protocols and processes we can adopt to implement in our own Shelter.

We have a working strategic plan which we are finalizing, and expect to continue to build upon as we grow and improve.

Wap xổ số miền bắcWe are purposely assessing the situation in an in-depth and methodical way, so that we retain the processes that work, and improve in the areas that do not, to implement lasting change and so that we can make this shelter the model shelter we know it can become. It is my ultimate goal to work toward a day when animals will not suffer because of abuse and neglect, and that every pet born into our community is assured a good home and loving care its entire life. We will continue to work to ensure the legal protection of animals from mistreatment and to promote in our community responsible pet ownership through education, motivation, and enforcement. 

I would like to thank the dedicated employees at the Animal Shelter who are committed every day to the continued care of the animals in their charge. I would also like to thank the public for their patience and understanding as we move to bring new leadership and make improvements.
