Quick Recap

In a recent post, I pointed out that the city only lists 67 houses on its Gustav demolition list. Yet, WWL reports that 300 houses will be demolished because of Gustav. Now City business (H/T Squandered Heritage) reports 166 demolition permits issued in the last week. Why is the list that we're allowed to see so much smaller than the others?

Also, the city council questions the performance of a storm debris removal contacts, but it barely questions the unbelievably wide variation in the costs of the various debris removal contracts. Also, it questions DRC's ability to remove debris, but not its ability to create debis:
DRC Emergency Services, the demolition company contracted by the city with federal Hurricane Katrina recovery funds, will take down the buildings issued under the mayor’s order.

If you really want to make something out of probably nothing, you'll even find that DRC has a past history with Southern Scrap.
