MANDEVILLE, La. - For the first time in months, people are being invited back to enjoy the Mandeville Fishing Pier.

According to our partners at CityBusiness, Mandeville's Public Works Department will complete repairs to the pier caused by Hurricane Isaac by June 15.

The city wanted to open the pier by Memorial Day weekend, but unexpected delays of shipments of materials needed to follow through with repairs postponed the reopening.

Isaac ripped apart the pier's decking, handrails and fencing.

Repairs cost more than $300,000.
