Parish Police Jury Meeting: July 13, 2021

By Jim Wilkerson

The Police Jury approved adjusting and levying tax millage rates for 2021, setting forth adjusted millage rates, and rolling forward millages not to exceed maximum authorized millages for 2021. One Police Jury member, TJ Cranford, voted no.

The Police Jury also unanimously voted to adopt a resolution in support of the Parish Library millage. Mrs. Laura Hartt, in her budget report to the Police Jury, noted that the library has already made cuts to the staff budget, even though this was the library’s decision and not the Police Jury’s. It is estimated that if the library millage is not passed in October, then the Parish Library will likely go under before July of next year.
