CITY OF GRETNA
For Immediate Release
Post Hurricane Zeta UPDATE
Our Public Utilities and Public Works Departments are continuing to evaluate damages
sustained by Hurricane Zeta and begin cleanup. There are approximately 6,700 people inside
the city of Gretna (70053) without power last night, and many remain so. We have
communicated with Entergy, and they have begun assessing outages and developing a plan of
action on how to begin restoring power.
At this time, our garbage contractor is scheduled to resume normal operations today. Please stay tuned the city’s Facebook page – City of Gretna, and our website – www.GretnaLA.com, for further information and updates throughout the remainder of the week.
Due to power outages, Gretna City Hall and the Clerk of Court will be
closed today, and City Court has been cancelled. Anyone scheduled
for court on 10/29/2020 should call the Clerk of Court on Friday,
10/30/2020 at (504) 227-7325 to reschedule.
We will be operating remotely and with a limited staff, handling post-storm matters, at
our Emergency Operations Center.
If you have questions or need assistance, please call us at (504) 363-1505.
