GRAMERCY, La. (AP) - Gramercy Mayor Terry Borne says voter approval of a 4.70-mill property tax renewal proposition would result in an upgraded water treatment plant for town residents and a chance to take advantage of $500,000 in savings on the $1.5 million project.
Borne tells The Advocate voters are being asked to approve a proposition on the April 6 ballot authorizing the town to sell up to $1.5 million in bonds and extend a 4.70-mill tax first adopted in 2003 for up to 20 years.
He says the money would be used to pay for upgrades and improvements to the town's 30-year-old water treatment facility.
Filters, piping, valves, pumps, an electrical system and the "overcrowded, unsafe work building" will be upgraded under the proposed project.
