Meraux Foundation donates land for SBPSO sub-station

The Meraux Foundation, through Meraux Land Development LLC, announced last week that it has donated a plot of land at 4700 Paris Road in Chalmette to the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office for the site of a new sub-station. “We are happy to donate this land to the Sheriff’s Office to help make our community safer and stronger,” said Rita Gue, president of the Meraux Foundation. “We give land for projects that add value to the property, have long-term effects, and improve the parish; and this new sub-station meets all our criteria.” The sub-station’s location is ideal because it allows the Sheriff’s Office to monitor traffic entering and exiting the Parish.
