Message from Mayor regarding Potential Severe Weather

Citizens of Opelousas, 

On Thursday evening, we experienced some severe weather along with a torrential down pour.  Weather forecasters are predicting similar conditions beginning on Sunday morning.  I urge each of you to take precautionary measures to secure your garbage cans, loose projectile and any items that could become debris and obstruct/clog our drainage system.  City administration is asking each of you to assist in limiting the amounts of trash buildup that could happen if we  do not take proactive steps.  Please secure any potential items that could become debris. May your and your families have a blessed Easter. 

Mayor Julius Alsandor
