Parish receives grant for Leeville Fishing Pier

Mathews, LA – Lafourche Parish Government recently received a grant in the amount of $42,000 from the Bayou Lafourche Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (BLACVB) to go towards improvements at the Leeville Fishing Pier project.

According to Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle, the funding will be used for construction of restrooms at the pier.

“I would like to thank the convention and visitors bureau for their generosity in assisting in this important project to aid the residents and businesses of Leeville. Thanks also to Councilmen Jerry Lafont and Daniel Lorraine for their assistance in acquiring these funds,” said Cantrelle.

Monies acquired earlier through the capital outlay process, parish government and generous participation from the Greater Lafourche Port Commission will go towards the construction of the fishing pier and pavilion.

“This project serves as a fine example of the progress that can be made when various entities work together toward a common goal. It will boost the economy of Leeville and provide a space for citizens to enjoy some of Louisiana’s great natural resources,” said Cantrelle.
