The final phase of debris removal is about to get underway in Lake Charles and Mayor Randy Roach is asking residents to take advantage of it while they still can. The Army Corps of Engineers will begin their final pass through Lake Charles on Monday, April 3 and they're anticipating to have it completed by Saturday, April 15. Mayor Roach says residents and businesses should put their debris out on the same day as their regular trash pickup. "The Army Corps of Engineers are going to be following our trash trucks when they see a pile of hurricane debris, they'll pick it up," said Roach. If there is any question about the eligibility of a pile of debris, the Corps will send out an inspector and if they think it doesn't qualify, they'll mark it with paint.
