Debris pickup slated to begin Monday

Back-to-back hurricanes left an avalanche of debris in Eunice and across the area that needs to be picked up.
Eunice Mayor Scott Fontenot said crews will begin picking up debris left on the side of roads on Monday.
Whether it will be city or parish crews was uncertain Friday morning.
City crews had just finished picking up the debris from Hurricane Laura that hit Aug. 27 when Hurricane Delta struck on Oct. 9, he said.
On Friday, the FEMA disaster declaration was amended to include reimbursement to city for debris removal from Laura, he said.
