St. Landry teacher pay, school maintenance taxes pass

St. Landry Parish voters have renewed two taxes that are vital to the operation of the parish's school system.

The second tax, a 10-year, 4.37-mill property tax, passed by a 77%-23% margin (2,627-772). The tax, which will fund the operation, improvement, and maintenance of the parish's public schools, will raise more than $2.6 million annually between 2015 and 2024.

Voter turnout in this election was 5.7%.
