Printing this page provides a handy reference tho it is periodically updated.  Linked below, MOPR's PCO List (People, Companies & Organizations) pertains to all names mentioned in connection with the ACE/VP Levee Project & City of VP/EM regrettably or not, but is also in lieu of a separate LINKS Page to other Property Rights Orgs, gov't watchdogs as well as gov't websites, property records, etc.  PCO's also provides a key to abbreviations & various versions of names used by & in VP Atty EM Bills which are linked in Section 1 of MOPR's Docs Page. 

 

Your time spent visiting & contacting MOPR to immediately fix any non-functioning links or to provide comments, suggestions & info are absolutely appreciated & requests for anonymity well-respected!  Oppression thrives on passive people.
