Today is Grand Jury day for the Jefferson Parish Council…

Actually Grand Jury day 2. Rich Rainey filed a short report for the T-P where he includes a nuance previously missing from the earlier reporting concerning the exact type of subpoena that was issued as all subpoenas are evidently not created equal.

  4. This LIAR, LIAR… ROBERTS…may be the most shameless politician that even opened his BIGGGGGGGG mouth.

    mini-me ROBERTS was a prime instigator in sounding the charge to set the stage of getting rid of Waste Management…complaining 3 days after Katrina

  5. Kudos go out to Rich Rainey for his coverage of the garbage contract awarded to IESI. And all this while he was developing the sister story that has taken front page, River Birch.

    After reading the following excerpt from Rainey

  6. Speaking of IESI, did anyone see this report on WVUE?

    It seems that IESI basically did a lil’ end around with the St. Tammany Parish administration on the normal rules of procedure to create a waste transfer station by means of a zoning change in a quiet and powerless neighborhood. No notice to the public was provided AT ALL. The district rep claims he cannot even get a hearing on it. “”””St. Tammany Parish Councilman Al Hamauei, who represents the Lacombe area, believes a permit to IESI was based on a loose interpretation of the current zone restrictions for that area. He’s been battling to hold a public hearing for months on the zoning of this area. “I just think we need a public hearing. I tried for a moratorium emergency moratorium. The council didn’t agree. I tried for zoning and we’re still working on zoning. In this case, we should have had one in place and this would not have happened,” Hamauei said by phone.””
