Landrieu Takes Aim on Blight
New Orleans, La. – The mayor-elect was asked at a news conference last week about when owners should consider doing more to their property damaged in Hurricane Katrina than boarding up and cutting the grass.
"Now would be good."
Landrieu said he would be asking the Louisiana Recovery Authority to funnel unallocated federal money on clearing blight.
Landrieu takes office in May.
