Property Tax Increase – Do You Approve ?

10:16 pm in legislation, News, Uncategorized by Jeff M Cooksey

The Ouachita Parish Police Jury is proposing a 3.1 mill property tax increase from 9.2 to 12.3 mills for funding of increased operational costs of the Ouachita Correctional Center. Apparently the operational costs of this facility are exceeding the present revenue generated. This proposition will be on the April 30th ballot.
NELTP wishes to provide the Police Jury with some feed back from some of the property owners that will be affected by this tax increase. If you are not familiar with this proposal nor the financial details impacting the revenue deficits of this facilty, please research this issue in order to come to an informed conclusion.
