The Town of Jean Lafitte was incorporated in 1974 and is governed by a mayor-council form of government. The Town’s major operations include public safety, public works, culture and recreation, and general administrative services.

Welcome

Welcome to the new Jean Lafitte website!

On these pages,  residents and visitors can find up-to-date information on our town–from government meetings and charter fishing to swamp tours and special events.

I want to welcome you to the heart of the Barataria Bay, one of America’s most productive estuaries. We are located just 30 minutes from New Orleans, but we are truly a world apart…a community on the banks of the bayou and surrounded by wetlands and swamps. We have boundless wildlife and fisheries for you to explore. We invite you to come and find out what makes this place so special.

Please take a moment to review this site.  We plan on adding lots of content as we move forward this summer, so please check back with us in the coming days, weeks, and months.

Your Interim Mayor,

Timothy P. Kerner, Jr.
