GRAMBLING — Grambling officials met July 12 at their monthly council meeting to discuss the town’s plans for finishing two ongoing projects meant to leave Grambling with four working water wells instead of two.
With two wells currently working — wells No. 5 and 6 — the town updated the status on wells No. 4 and 7, with some positive news for the Grambling community. Although the town has been operating on two wells, at least three are necessary to serve a community the size of Grambling without putting strain on the wells.
In recently released results, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Five-Star Quality Rating System recognized Louisiana HomeCare of Ruston with a 5-star rating in patient satisfaction.
