Holden: City-Parish workers should report to work Wednesday
BATON ROUGE - All City-Parish employees should report to work Wednesday, according to Mayor-President Kip Holden Saturday.
In a tweet shared Tuesday night on Baton Rouge's official Twitter account, Holden said employees will resume work at city offices and return to normal operating hours.
Any city-parish employee who have been impacted by the flooding and can not report for work Wednesday should notify their supervisor, a second tweet reads.

Holden's announcement comes after started a public fued with East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gauxtreaux. Holden said the Sheriff used a dirty, backdoor political deal with Governor John Bel Edwards to call a curfew in the parish. That curfew goes in effect from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.
