Our recreation facilities are first-rate and we will continue to maintain the ballparks and neighborhood parks,” said Mayor Jones.
“We continue to work with the Department of Transportation on the I-10 service road and our lighting project at Exit 82 (East Crowley exit) is complete and gives Crowley a much greater presence on the highway and creates a much safer exit with improved visibility for motorists.”
“Our wastewater facility has been upgraded with over $1 million dollars in improvements and maintenance made possible by a Department of Environmental Quality grant.,” he added. Also our Magnolia lift station has permanent generator for disaster
operations should they occur.”

“I’m proud of the direction our city has taken since I’ve become mayor,” said Jones. “However, Crowley has many more worthwhile projects both for infrastructure improvement and cultural development that will be attainable as our economy improves. In short, there is I feel there is much more to do and I humbly ask that the citizens of Crowley elect me to another term to help our progress continue.”
