This Friday, we will observe the Good Friday and Easter holidays which means most of our local government agencies will do the same giving employees Friday off. So with everyone shutting down, services that you are used to getting each day will have to be changed.

Such is the case for the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury and the city of Lake Charles as they will observe the Good Friday holiday on Friday, March 29th, 2024,
