A Saturday open house welcomed the public to a new source of pride for Gretna city staff.

The event served to show off the city’s new Public Works facility, a project many years in the making.

The 38,400 square foot facility brings the City of Gretna’s street, water, sewer and parks departments together under one roof and features vehicle storage, an interior wash bay, administrative space and other storage over three levels.

The $5.5 million project sits on 10 acres and is designed to allow for future expansion. Designed in 2014, construction began in February of 2018.
