PORT ALLEN -  Interim Port Allen Mayor Lynn Robertson hasn't let her brief stint in City Hall stop her from making some visible changes in the city.

The changes are a part of the city's sweeping initiative to clean up blighted properties, spruce up major traffic corridors and repurpose the Port Allen Depot, a building deemed an eyesore by many city officials.

Robertson says the city spent approximately $10,000 landscaping trees along city streets, repairing broken electrical boxes and damaged street curbs on city rights of way, cleaning up trash in drainage ditches and even replacing the torn American flag that served as the city's welcoming banner at The Depot.

Most of the beautification efforts have been performed by city crews to minimize costs.
