Demolition of flood damaged homes begins


Bossier Parish Police Jury staffers have spent many hours of research, gone through tons of paperwork and had their share of "hurry up and wait," but all the effort came to fruition Tuesday when contractor Justin J. Reeves began demolishing the first of several flood-damaged homes in the parish.

This residence, at 218 Whispering Pine, should be completely removed in a couple of days according to Sherry McBroom, project manager. From there, the company will move on to the next two houses awarded from bids submitted to the police jury. Seven homes have been purchased and cleared for demolition; six in Tall Timbers and one of Cane Bend.
