Voters in Jeff Davis Parish will have a chance to discuss the proposed Jennings Elementary School that will be voted on later this month.

The Jeff Davis Chamber of Commerce will host a public forum to provide information regarding the extension of a half-cent sales tax and 13-mills property tax that were approved by voters in 2001. If extensions are approved, funds would be used to build a pre-K through sixth-grade campus in Jennings.

The chamber is currently accepting questions to be presented to speakers at the forum. Questions can be submitted by emailing or by calling 337-824-0933. The deadline to submit is March 15, 2019.

The forum will be held Wednesday, March 20 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at the SOWELA Community Technology College Morgan Smith Instructional Site at 2110 N. Sherman Street Jennings, LA.
