The buildings on Front Street are getting a new coat of paint. Coushatta Mayor Johnny Cox announced at Town Council meeting Tuesday night that May 5th will be painting day.
The mayor said that property owners will select their own color. Cox said, “The town didn’t have to put any money into this project. We’re getting assistance from United Way, the Chamber and Tourism programs. And I will allocate several of my pay checks as mayor to the project.”
Also planned is a cleaning of the bricks and sidewalks. Mayor Cox thanked the council for their help. He said it is an ongoing community effort to refurbish Front Street.
