Parish council decides to put lower millage proposals on Oct. 19 ballot
The Jefferson Parish Council voted Wednesday to place before voters this fall two property tax millage proposals to fund water and sewerage that are lower than the ones they rejected May 4.
The new proposals call for the collection of property taxes for water and sewerage at last year's levels: 3.54 mills for water and 3.58 mills for sewerage.
The proposals rejected by voters in May wanted 5 mills each for water and sewerage.
The tax millage proposals will be placed on the Oct. 19 ballot.
