Ouachita property tax renewal on April ballot

MONROE, La. (AP) - A 10-year, 0.75-mill property tax renewal will be one of the items on the Ouachita Parish ballot in the April 6 election.

The money generated from the parish-wide tax helps fund the Ouachita Parish Health Unit and the parish's animal control efforts, including the shelter.

Brad Cammack, Ouachita Parish Police Jury treasurer, tells The News-Star the tax is expected to bring in around $700,000 each year over the next 10 years.

Two-thirds of that, or $467,000, will go toward operating, maintaining and sustaining the health unit, while $233,000 will go toward rabies and animal control.

Police Jury President Shane Smiley said the millage is the same amount as the previous millage.
