From the Desk of the Mayor

The elected officials of the City of Gretna have been working in concert with Jefferson Parish for the last 36 hours to ensure the safety of our residents. While some have heeded warning and have decided to evacuate, we do realize that some have chosen to shelter in place. Please understand that emergency resources will not be available during the course of Hurricane Ida. City services remain in place during this time, however our Streets Department is limited in what they are capable of accomplishing throughout the duration of this storm. It is our intention to resume the regular course of work as soon as possible. All city departments, including the Gretna Police Department and the David Crockett Fire Department, are prepared and stand ready for this storm.

Additional Notes:
Garbage collection is suspended on Monday, August 30.
Please make sure that your garbage cans and recycling bins are put away and secured.

We will send updates regarding future closures and conditions as we receive them. For any city service emergencies, please call (504) 363-1500. For any other emergencies, please dial 911. To stay up to date with all information regarding this storm as it relates to the City of Gretna, please visit our website – or our Facebook page – CityOfGretna.
