CLINTON, La. (AP) - The East Feliciana Parish School Board has started talking about raising more money for public education.
The board's financial adviser, certified public accountant Tommy LeJeune, presented estimates of the amount of money that could be gained if voters approved a 28-, 38- or 48-mill property tax increase.
The board discussed its options for about 15 minutes last week and decided to send the proposal to the Finance Committee, which is scheduled to take it up Thursday.
Board President Michael Bradford said he likely will call a special board meeting later this month to consider the committee's recommendation.
The board now collects the two taxes that are expected to generate about $2.36 million this year.
