Mandeville Mayor Donald Villere is asking for comments from the public about a new proposed seawall project along Lakeshore Drive.
Villere spoke about the project yesterday saying there will be a public forum on the seawall next Wednesday at Mandeville City Hall.
The project would cost an estimated $2 million to take the existing seawall and rebuild it 12 inches higher.
Critics of the seawall say while it would prevent water from Lake Pontchartrain washing out Lakeshore Drive, it will do nothing to prevent flooding during tropical weather.
