The ongoing financial concerns at Ouachita Correctional Center, questions surrounding the proposed V-Vehicle project, the death of a Ouachita Parish Sheriff's deputy in the line of duty, the West 20/20 project, and the naming of a new president at the University of Louisiana-Monroe were some of the stories that dominated headlines in The Ouachita Citizen during 2010.
Over the past year, The Ouachita Citizen reported extensively about the financial woes at OCC, and the proposed property tax renewal for OCC that could be presented to voters sometime in the fall of 2011.
Police Jury finance committee chairman Charles Jackson believes the existing property tax that funds operations at OCC needs to be increased by at least 2.5 mills to 3 mills.
Voters in 2007 approved a five-year, 9.2-mills ad valorem tax to keep the parish jail up and running.
That tax consisted of 8.60 mills for operating and maintenance costs, with .60 mills dedicated to future needs at the jail.
