It has been nearly 10 years since Hurricane Katrina desecrated large swaths of St. Bernard Parish, but scars from the storm remain glaringly obvious. While many parish residents have moved on with their lives, blighted lots throughout the parish are an ever-present reminder of those horrific days in August 2005. That is not to say that St. Bernard residents have become complacent with the status quo. According to the parish’s Chief Compliance Inspector Clay Dillon, his department is receiving as many, if not more, complaints about blight as they did in the years immediately after the storm, and they are working as hard as ever to make this a problem of the past.
