NEW DRAINAGE DIVISION:
A drainage division has been created within the Department of Public Works.  This division consists of the following employees:  Dale Benoit, Earl Himel, Joseph Mahler and Gerard Talbot.  These persons were selected to this division primarily because they have the expertise and the skills to operate the various equipment that is required to perform the necessary functions, which are the focus of the division.  Miguel Maggio supervises the activities and oversees the inventory of the drainage structures.

The Drainage division is responsible for clearing, grubbing and excavating all open ditches within the city as required.  They are also responsible for the installation and cleaning of subsurface drainage structures and catch basins throughout the city.  They are also responsible for the grass cutting and flora control of drainage structures within the city.

Under Mr. Maggio’s direction and supervision, they are able to utilize other members of the Department staff or contractors to assist them during periods of emergency or when city equipment and/or dedicated personnel are inadequate to perform the tasks necessary.

 ENFORCEMENT CRACKDOWN

Thibodaux Police Department will join Enforcement Crackdown to make Louisiana Roadways Safer During Labor Day Weekend.

During the Labor Day weekend, Thibodaux Police Department will join nearly 1,800 other law enforcement agencies in a crash crackdown on Interstates 10, 20, 30, 35, 40 and all feeder routes in the states of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, according to Thibodaux Police Chief Howard Robertson.

“Our Officers and more than 77,000 other law enforcement officers will be patrolling and ticketing drivers who ignore traffic laws.  We will be watching for folks who are not buckled up and don’t have their children properly restrained.  We will also be cracking down on drinking and driving, aggressive driving, and exceeding speed limits,” said Chief Robertson.

This multi-state cooperative law enforcement effort, “Operation Blue TALON: Crash Crackdown” will begin at 6:00 p.m. Friday, August 29, 2003, and run through midnight Monday, September 1, 2003.  Municipal police, Sheriffs, and State police will participate.  This is the fifth year of this operation sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the state highway safety offices of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, (TALON).

“We are pleased to be involved with this crackdown on violations that annually account for many injuries and deaths.  We hope to make the roadways in our area safer for all holiday travelers,” according to Thibodaux Police Chief Robertson.

“A disproportionate number of traffic deaths here and throughout the states occur in pickup trucks, partly because of a higher incidence of rollovers in those vehicles and lower safety belt usage by their occupants.  Being unbuckled in a rollover crash is deadly,” Chief Robertson said.

“The chances for any driver in any vehicle getting stopped for ignoring speed limits, drinking and driving, and not being buckled up will be very high.  If our officers don’t stop you, another agency most likely will.  By working together, we are increasing the odds that travelers will get home safely,” said Robertson.

BAYOU LAFOURCHE ANTIQUES SHOW & SALE
The Thibodaux Civic Center will host the Bayou Lafourche Antiques Show on Friday, September 5 and Saturday, September 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday, September 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The event is sponsored by TaWaSi and the proceeds raised are donated to various non-profit groups/schools in the community.  Tickets are only $5 per person and are good for the whole weekend.  Also, a beautiful pearl ring and a lovely table will be raffled for $1 per ticket or 6 for $5.00.

This is the 29th year of the antique show and there will be about 45 dealers from all over the U.S.  IT WILL BE A GREAT SHOW - DON'T MISS IT!
