Several Evangeline Parish facilities now have generators thanks to a state block grant.
Governor Bobby Jindal visited Ville Platte today to highlight more than $1 million in grant money used to purchase the 14 generators. Governor Jindal says lessons learned following Hurricane Gustav led officials to apply for the grant funds for the generators.
The generators have been placed at the Evangeline Parish Health Unit in Ville Platte; the Chatagnier Fire Station; lift stations in Chatagnier, Mamou and Basile; sewer treatment plants in Ville Platte and Pine Prairie; and at the largest well in Turkey Creek.
