The waste here is the 200K spent on studies drive pilings 1 to 2 foot away from the wall on the lake side back fill and pour a 12'thick concrete slab from pilings over old wall to the road problem solved! But no one in government has the cajunes big enough to take the bull by the horn and actually lead!

Question. When the budget was passed was there a line item in the general fund for $150,000 for a study to repair the sea wall and another $50,000 in the Waste water fund? City leaders constantly state that monies are not available. They have to move monies around to pay for items. Now $200,000 is nothing. Look the wall has been there for decades yes it does need repair but is now the time to do it? And it is not the people of first ward that will get the benefit it will be the few houses along beach front Blvd. Take a tour around the city. There are numerous houses that need to be taken down. There is a big hole on Central Avenue where the Neptune statue could go, yet with industry cutting back taxes going through the roof the beach wall has now suddenly become a priority. There is yard damage from the snow plows from winter plowing are these being fixed> In a word NO. This administration is no better than the last. Although it might spend more of your money.
