|Council allocates $600K for roof repairs, upgrades|
The city of Monroe will use $600,000 in capital funding over a three-year period to upgrade the city's six community centers to turn them into proper evacuation shelters.
The Monroe City Council signed off on the project last week during its regular meeting.
The six community centers will undergo roof repairs and upgrades. They include Harvey H. Benoit, Saul Adler, Emily P. Robinson, Liller Maddox Marbles, Powell Street and Henrietta Johnson community centers.
The city will use $600,000 of its own funding in order to receive $1.15 million from the state to upgrade the six community centers for them to meet state guidelines as evacuation shelters.
The state embraced projects months ago to improve evacuation centers in light of the number of hurricanes that struck Louisiana in recent years. Facilities in northern Louisiana communities, including Monroe and West Monroe, serve as evacuation centers for hurricane evacuees.
