Police gain parking lot during cleanup program

Rayville will be getting a cleaner look thanks to a $20,000 Louisiana Government Assistance Grant.

“We were able to get this grant and we’re going to use it for our demolition program,” Rayville Mayor Harry Lewis said.

The town will use the money to tear down vacant buildings throughout Rayville and clean up the lots. 

“This is something we are able to do through a grant without it costing the taxpayers a cent,” Lewis said.
