Services for Today.... and Tomorrow

Why AskBR Was Created

AskBR is a service from the East Baton Rouge City Parish Government that can help you, the citizen, by either providing the information you need or giving you the correct office and telephone number to address your concern.

At the end of each message, AskBR provides you with a telephone number for your personal service.  The system does not take the place of individual customer service, but rather offers you a 24-hour option.  You may find the system most useful in the early morning, late evening and weekends or holidays when our offices are closed, or it may help you find the correct office and extension for your question.

Quick Tips
