Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on the upcoming St. Patrick's Day parade and the city's new appointments.
The parade will include the regionally famous Krewe of Shamrockers, The Queens, and the Raw Oyster Marching Club.
The parade will start on Waveland Avenue, travel down Central Avenue, turn right onto Coleman Avenue, right on Beach Boulevard, then disband at Waveland Avenue. The Waveland Police Department decided this route is logistically the best route for the parade. Hope to see everyone lined up on the route ready to catch beads, cups, and, of course, cabbage!
In February, Waveland approved the appointment of former Lt. Phillip Pavolini to assistant police chief and Mickey Lagasse as city clerk.
Assistant Chief Phillip Pavolini has been with Waveland Police Department for a number of years and rose through the ranks. Assistant Chief Pavolini will be an outstanding addition to the leadership team at the Waveland Police Department. He brings a wealth of experience and an impeccable service record to his new role.
My expectations are simple: law and order and providing exceptional service while maintaining community confidence in our police force. Not only has Assistant Chief Pavolini fulfilled that expectation, he has earned the respect of the public and his fellow officers with his impressive service to our community.
Mickey Lagasse will be an excellent fit here at the city for a host of reasons. His love of customer service will serve the city residents well. He also has years of experience leading staff, streamlining processes, overseeing budgets, preparing contracts, and is a well-organized professional. These are all necessary attributes that we were seeking when filling the city clerk position.
