Red Cross shelter closes, water line break repaired

The Red Cross shelter that was opened for families affected by a water outage in Coffee City has closed.

According to Bob Fisher with the Red Cross, no one was using the services so the shelter was closed around 2 a.m. on Monday.

Janice Hayes, spokesperson for Southwest Water Company/Monarch Utilities, said only 14 homes were affected by a water main break in the Monarch Utilities mainline in Coffee City on Sunday evening. It took crews a while to repair the break because it was located on a steep incline in a wooded area.

Repairs to the mainline have been completed and services should be restored to the 14 homes by noon on Monday

    Many parents are angry after finding out there is a chance their child might not be able to attend pre-kindergarten for the upcoming school year. 

    A family's income has to be below 185 percent of the federal poverty guidelines to be accepted into a pre-K program with Calcasieu Parish Schools. 

    Unfortunately, many families who applied didn't meet those requirements, and have received a letter saying they've been wait listed.
