WP Government Takes Care of Routine & Not So Routine Matters

Throughout the last few days, Washington Parish Government has been communicating with residents regarding the threats posed by Tropical Storm Harvey. Communication has been through their website, their Facebook page, and the Facebook page of the Washington Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. At the Washington Parish Council meeting Monday (August 28, 2017) evening, Parish President Richard Thomas reported on the preparations for expected weather concerns associated with Tropical Storm Harvey.
