The city of Carencro is expected to receive federal funding to begin the first phase of one of its drainage projects.
Tuesday night at the Lafayette Consolidated Government council meeting, Lafayette Parish-President Joey Durel will introduce an ordinance to receive over $58,000 from FEMA to give to the city of Carencro.
The funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency is for one of two projects that FEMA is funding for Carencro.
The $58,000 gain will help in phase one of the Andre Coulee Project. The money will cover the engineering and designing of the project.
FEMA awarded the money for the design phase about a month ago. The entire hazardous mitigation project is expected to cost from five to six million dollars.
