|Parish voters to decide property tax proposal|
The Ouachita Parish Police Jury voted 4-2 Monday to call a special election on April 30 for voters to entertain a five-year, 11.3-mill property tax proposition to fund operations at Ouachita Correctional Center.
Police Jurors Pat Moore and Dr. Ollibeth Reddix voted against placing the tax proposition on the April 30 ballot, while Police Jurors Mack Calhoun, Walt Caldwell, Charles Jackson and Shane Smiley voted in favor of it.
The vote occurred Monday during the Police Jury's regular meeting. The vote followed months of discussion about financial concerns at OCC.
The property tax proposal is headed to the state Bond Commission for its approval to hold the special election. In order for the matter to be placed on the April ballot, the state Bond Commission must approve it at its March meeting.
