New Orleans, Winn Dixie Team Up to Help Citizens Take Care of City Biz

Winn Dixie and the City of New Orleans are giving residents an easy way to take care of city business -- such as making property tax and parking ticket payments -- thanks to the convenience of the new kiosks now available in all Orleans Parish Winn-Dixie stores.

“Winn Dixie continues to demonstrate leadership and commitment to the recovery of New Orleans,” said Mayor C. Ray Nagin. “Winn-Dixie was the first major grocery store to reopen in New Orleans East following Hurricane Katrina, which was a strong signal of their investment in this recovery. By rolling out City of New Orleans kiosks that feature recovery project maps, as well as express city services, Winn-Dixie continues to show that they value their customers and this city.”

Similar kiosks are already in use in New Orleans’ city hall, which also allow citizens to review the status of city projects and register for the City Assisted Evacuated Plan (CAEP) in time for hurricane season, among other things.

“After Katrina, we were the last stores closed and the first stores reopened,” said Joey Medina, regional VP for Jacksonville, Fla.-based Winn-Dixie. “We remain committed to helping New Orleans recover, not just as the retail grocery store of choice, but [also] as a caring neighbor in every community we serve.”
