Ouachita Parish Police Jury Monday Night – “V-Vehicle Tax” Won’t be Collected for 2011

The Ouachita Parish Police Jury (OPPJ) will meet in regular session Monday, September 19, 5:30 PM., Ouachita parish courthouse second floor. The courthouse is located on South Grand Street.

See here the agenda.

We had noted that the 2011 tax ordinance was introduced at the 09/06/2011 meeting of the jury. That ordinance is up for final adoption Monday night.

We had also noted that for the second consecutive year, the “V-Vehicle Tax” levied in 2009 was not being collected. However, the tax monies collected for tax year 2009 for that purpose has yet to be refunded as promised.

That promise is not a figment of our imagination – a resolution (09-63) was adopted at the 07/20/2009 jury meeting saying that the money would be refunded.

BE IT RESOLVED by the Ouachita Parish Police Jury in legal and regular session that in the event the voters approve the Proposition and thereafter the Local Contribution does not become due, the Ouachita Parish Police Jury will use its best efforts to refund to the taxpayers such taxes paid as a result of the levy under the authority of the Proposition;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that in the event said Local Contribution does not become due, the Ouachita Parish Police Jury will not make any future levy pursuant to the authorization of the Proposition;

See here the official minutes of that meeting.
