This week the Vermilion Parish Police Jury was approved for debris removal reimbursement from FEMA.
This means to the parish residents that the police jury will be able to hire a contractor to remove all of the debris along the side of the road caused by Hurricane Laura.
Since the hurricane, the police jury has had a contractor on standby waiting to see if FEMA would approve debris assistance.
The contractor will be removing debris on Monday, and is expected to take around 30 days to have the debris removed.
