Intergraph® Corporation to conduct a series of interviews with various City-Parish representatives that are involved with addressing. The intent of the on-site interviews was to review the needs associated with improving and maintaining civic addresses.
As a result, a document was delivered to the City-Parish with findings and recommendations.
One of the first accomplishments that occurred after completing the
