Breaux Bridge residents will soon get the chance to vote on a new sales tax increase.

The city is looking to increase the tax and the possibility was discussed at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, August 14.

At the meeting, the council approved a resolution that would allow voters to choose whether or not they want the increase in sales tax.

If the vote passes, the city's sales tax would increase from one cent to two cents.

The money raised by the increase would go towards funding infrastructure, drainage, and economic development.
