The City of Lake Charles continues to monitor Tropical Storm Barry. City services will remain open tomorrow, Friday, July 12, with the exception of the summer enrichment program, camps and summer feeding sites.

Summer enrichment programs, summer camp at Drew Park and Camp AmeriCorps, as well as the City’s summer food program feeding sites will all be closed on Friday, July 12. This closure is in line with closures announced by the Calcasieu Parish School Board, impacting transportation and meal services for these programs.

City transit routes are expected to run as usual. Friday garbage and trash collection is also expected to remain unaffected. City officials do advise residents, however, to bring their trash cans back in after they are emptied and to pick up any loose items in their yards as the area could see some strong wind gusts at times over the next several days.
