This week on Behind The Lens:
The battle over short term rentals. The New Orleans City Council advanced a proposal that could make whole-property short-term rentals illegal in residential neighborhoods. But the debate isn’t over yet. Michael Isaac Stein has the report.
Also, asbestos in local schools. Remediation work at two New Orleans charter schools is taking longer than expected – so students will have to spend a second year at temporary facilities. Education reporter Marta Jewson has the details.
And flooding. New Orleanians woke up on Mother’s Day to find that their property – cars, homes and businesses – had taken on water during severe overnight storms. We sat down with Brian Knighten – owner of The Broad Theater – to talk about how flood waters have impacted his business.
