Yesterday Mandeville Mayor Clay Madden announced his appointment of Keith LaGrange as the new Director of Public Works. LaGrange, a native of St. Bernard Parish, is coming to Mandeville after serving as the Director of Public Works for the City of New Orleans. He has also previously served as the Director of Public Works for St. Bernard Parish. LaGrange currently resides on the north shore with his family. Madden said LaGrange checks all the boxes of what his administration wants to do with the department. His experience and attitude will enable him to have an immediate impact. LaGrange will assume his new position with the city later this month.
