NEW ORLEANS - The City Council was unable to hold the March meeting of the Emergency Preparedness and Cybersecurity Special Committee, which was established due to the multiple, tragic safety events that occurred throughout New Orleans this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
District "D" Councilmember and committee chair Jared Brossett has released the following statement in response:
"I was looking forward to hearing from the public and Mardi Gras Krewes on how we can make Mardi Gras safer for all who share in this annual tradition. I value your input and believe that success depends on us working together. Since we are unable to meet in-person at this time, the Council wants to invite the public to submit written comments via email for safety improvements you believe the Council should consider. All written comments submitted to the Council via email by May 1st will be shared with Mayor Cantrell's Mardi Gras Advisory Council.
I appreciate your time, dedication, and efforts both in making Mardi Gras safer for all who participate."
