Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser will greet Keep Bossier Beautiful (KBB) board members and volunteers Saturday, Feb. 26 at 8:45 a.m. at the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office Viking Dr. substation at 2510 Viking Drive.
With the recent creation of Governor Edwards’ Litter Task Force, attention and support to raise awareness for local work such as KBB is provided. KBB volunteers will perform their annual Community Appearance Index on Feb. 26 as required by all Keep America Beautiful (KAB) affiliates.
This assessment is a tool to gather and measure data by surveying a random, statistical sample of our parish. This data is used by KAB affiliates across the nation to assure consistency among affiliates. This data will also provide information for determining changes in attitudes and behaviors regarding litter and related issues.
KBB is at work in Bossier Parish to make it clean, green, and beautiful. They are a recipient of the Circle of Excellence Award from Keep Louisiana Beautiful for 2019, 2020, and 2021.
Their most recent work includes installation of trash receptacles at bus stop benches, creation of Bossier Parish Prisons Recycle program, Louisiana’s first recycling program within corrections, and other litter abatement initiatives in partnership with local government, leaders, businesses, and interested individuals.
