City Council meeting and shoe box float winners (Feb. 5, 2013)

Here are images from the City Council meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. The meeting included an invocation by Father Greg Barras of St. Michael Catholic Church, presentation of city employee longevity awards, recognition of winners of the Mardi Gras shoe box float contest, and a report from Marvin G. Dalla Rosa, the project manager for HNTB, the firm the city hired to coordinate the massive infrastructure program. Representatives of VFW Post 2434 also spoke about plans for their new post home on Veterans Avenue. Also in this gallery are the winning entries from the shoe box float contest. The entries are on display in the lobby of City Hall. Photos by Vincent Creel. Click on individual images to enlarge.
