Some St. Mary Parish will vote Saturday on a proposition to continue funding health care in the Wax Lake area.
A ballot item in Hospital Service District No. 1 will allow voters there to decide if they want to renew a 10-year, 3.47-mill property tax, generating an estimated $590,000 a year, to maintain and operate hospital facilities.
Hospital District 1 was created to benefit the health care of citizens west and northwest of the Wax Lake Outlet.
Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
