Levee District Honors Past Board Member 
The Board of Commissioners, at it's regular monthly meeting of February 13, 2017, voted unanimously to honor former commissioner and State Reprentative, Richard "Dick" Guidry by renaming the South Lafourche Levee District office and surrounding buildings to the 'South Lafourche Levee District, Richard "Dick" Guidry Complex'.

Mr. Guidry played an integral part in the creation of the levee district.  For more information, visit the History of SLLD.
