Residents discuss flooding, drugs with mayor

Blighted properties, flooded roads and rampant drug use are a few issues District B residents face in their neighborhoods, they told the mayor and his advisory board at a community meeting on Thursday.

It was the second in a series of meetings led by Mayor Nic Hunter, who took office earlier this month, and his nine-member Community Advisement and Assessment Board. The first was July 13 in District A, which includes downtown and most of north Lake Charles. District B includes parts of north and central Lake Charles.
