Jena Mayor LaDawn Edwards has had just about enough of the constant delays involving the completion of the Third Street Plaza Project as she updated the Jena Town Council during their monthly meeting September 3.

“I have been on the phone all day (Tuesday, Sept. 3) after they (Progressive Construction Company of Alexandria) told me they would be here today to finish the area of Third Street by Rick’s Pizza and they didn’t show up,” Mayor Edwards said. “They had assured me they would be here today and they wouldn’t leave until it was finished.
