Letters to Leaders

Good Afternoon,

Happy Mardi Gras! This weekend Carnival continues in St. Tammany Parish, as six krewes will roll through our communities. I want to personally wish all of our krewes and parade-goers a successful, safe and fun season. Please refer to this schedule to stay up-to-date with all parades.


Our Department of Animal Services uses plastic cups during their rescue flights to find homes for pets throughout the country. If you have any unwanted cups, please consider donating them to our shelter.

I am happy to share that our efforts to improve infrastructure is off to a fast start in 2022. Through a partnership with DOTD, we are replacing two bridges, on Hosmer Mill Road near River Road and Million Dollar Road near LA 25. The bridges will experience intermittent closures for crews to perform work related to the project. DOTD has also shared that they are anticipating the opening of the U.S. 11 Hwy Bridge in Slidell by the end of March.

This week, our Grants Department started the process to elevate the first of 77 homes, which experience frequent flooding, through the facilitation of a $32 million grant. Through grant funding in 2021, we helped raise ten homes. If you would like more information on this program, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

As always, please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance in any way. Laissez les bons temps rouler!


Michael B. Cooper
Parish President
