The official start of Summer starts this weekend in most people's minds as we are about to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday weekend.  Everyone is looking forward to the extended and probably much needed 3 day weekend!

Since the holiday is coming up the City of Lake Charles will be closed on Monday which will alter the trash pickup times for residents who have their trash picked up on Monday's.
