“The City of Slidell takes great pride in recognizing local talents and their contributions to our community,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “Brayden Jobert has been an exceptional role model for our youth, and we are honored to dedicate this day to celebrate him and his fellow teammate’s achievements.”

Brayden, a native of Slidell, has exemplified excellence and sportsmanship throughout his baseball career.

The Slidell City Council recently passed a golf cart ordinance allowing golf carts to travel on City of Slidell streets with a posted speed limit of 25 mph or less. This ordinance goes into affect on Thursday, June 15, 2023.

“Cities around the country have passed ordinances allowing their citizens to travel around their communities on golf carts, and I’m excited that Slidell is now one of these cities,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “This will only add to the charm of Slidell and I’m excited about this opportunity for our community. Please be safe and make sure to follow all the rules.”

Citizens are encouraged to read the golf cart ordinance (Code of Ordinances, Chapter 27, Article V, Ordinance No. 4117), which includes regulations for driving a golf cart on city streets. It can be viewed on the City of Slidell’s website.

2023 Golf Cart Ordinance

Before golf carts can drive on city streets, they must be inspected and permitted with the City of Slidell. Inspections are by appointment only at the following locations:

Northshore Custom Carts

Slidell, LA 70458
(985) 847-2561

Coach’s Carts
39173 Hwy. 190 E.

On Monday, May 8, Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer was joined by State Senator Sharon Hewitt and other elected leaders and members of city administration to break ground on the Olde Towne Slidell Crosswalks Project. This project will add brick paver crosswalks at the intersections of Cousin Street and Carey Street, Cousin Street and First Street, First Street ad Robert Street, and Robert Street and Carey Street in Olde Towne Slidell.

McDonald Construction is the contractor and the estimated cost of the project is $225,000. State Senator Sharon Hewitt was able to have $200,000 appropriated for this project through a line appropriation in the State’s budget.

“This project came to fruition from the Slidell Main Street Master Plan meetings, and I know that Olde Towne residents and businesses are excited about this project,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “I would like to thank Senator Hewitt for her help in securing funding from the State for this project.”

The first street closures will begin on Monday, May 8, and additional intersection closures will be announced.

Due to rising fuel costs and pursuant to the City of Slidell’s Solid Waste Disposal agreement with Coastal Environmental Services, the Slidell City Council has authorized a fuel surcharge recovery fee not to exceed $2 per month. The fuel surcharge will appear on the September 2022 sewer and water bills and on subsequent bills.

This decision was made by the Slidell City Council after careful review and public input. The surcharge is based on the consumption of fuel that is used on routes inside the city limits and is determined by the actual cost of diesel over $3.50 per gallon. The fee will vary month by month, depending on the cost of fuel, and if the price goes below $3.50, the surcharge will go away unless the cost of diesel rises again.

Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer, the members of the Slidell City Council, and Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal invite the public to attend the City of Slidell’s 2022 Inaugural Ceremony on Friday, July 1, at 6 p.m. at the Slidell Municipal Auditorium. The public is encouraged to attend.

Slidell’s newest piece of public art is now on display at the roundabout at Robert Blvd. and Brownswitch Road.

“Slidell’s Community Camellia Tree” is an eight foot tall iron and glass sculpture depicting a camellia tree in full bloom. It’s an artistic collaboration between welder Jamie Gomez, owner of JG Land and Marine, and artist Solange Ledwith of Swamp Girl Glass. Gomez constructed and welded the base, trunk and branches and Ledwith created the beautiful glass camellias that adorn the tree.

In addition to the sculpture, new landscaping will be added to spruce up the roundabout.

“I would like to thank the artists and everyone who worked so diligently on this project, said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “We are so fortunate to have a thriving art community in our city. This piece of art is a great addition to all the murals around our city. We are honored to support our art community and are looking forward to more public art in Slidell.”

In 2020, the City of Slidell commissioned several local artists to paint murals around the city as part of the “Celebrate Slidell Public Art Project.” The murals not only celebrated Slidell’s culture and community, but also recognized the bravery of first responders and health care heroes in the midst of a pandemic. The new camellia tree is the first sculpture in the public art series and is hopefully the first of many that will be installed around the city.

“Helping to beautify our city and encouraging public art in our community is important to me,” said Solange Ledwith, artist and owner of Swamp Girl Glass. “It was great collaborating with Jamie and I would like to thank the City of Slidell for allowing us to be a part of this project.”

Glass camellias are still being added to the tree and members of the community have a chance to be a part of this unique public art project. Individuals can sponsor a camellia for $100 and it will be added to the camellia tree. Proceeds from sponsorship will help fund future public art projects. Checks made out to the City of Slidell can be delivered to Swamp Girl Glass located at 1060 Front Street or mailed to the City of Slidell’s Department of Cultural & Public Affairs, PO Box 828, Slidell, LA, 70459.

On Tuesday, May 24, Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer and members of the Slidell City Council gathered at Possum Hollow Park to rename the city pool the Lionel J. Washington Community Pool. Mr. Washington’s family also joined city administrators for the dedication ceremony.

“Lionel wasa trailblazer and a pioneer in our community,” said Cromer, “He was the first African-American person on the Slidell City Council. He served on the council for 24 years and was as an educator with St. Tammany Parish Public School System for 35 years. He was instrumental in getting the CDBG money for this community pool back in the 1980s. Swimming and water safety education were important projects for Lionel and this pool that he helped bring to our city adds to his legacy in our community.”

COX Business also made a donation to the Slidell Boys and Girls Club to assist with the maintenance and upkeep of the community pool.

“We are dedicated to creating meaningful partnerships with the City of Slidell and the community. The Boys and Girls Club plays a vital role in providing safe and educational environments where students can connect with one another,” said Leigh King, Vice President of Cox Business Louisiana. “Some of the best memories for adults were created spending time at their community pools, and Cox is excited that we could invest in making summer fun for children.”

“We are grateful to COX for the investment they have made in Slidell,” said Cromer. “We look forward to a continuing partnership with COX for the benefit of our community.”

The Lionel J. Washington Community Pool opens at 12 p.m. on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30. The pool is open during the summer, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 12 to 6 p.m. The cost is $1 per person.

Group swim lessons through Lakeside Swim Club are also available at the community pool  for $125 for six lessons. For more information, please call Nicole Beebe at (228) 363-2601.
