It looks to be an active Lincoln Parish Police Jury (LPPJ) meeting Tuesday night (9/13, 7:00 PM) at the Lincoln Parish Courthouse.
Here is the agenda.
There are twelve appeals to the jury (sitting as the Board of Review) for the just-released property tax assessments for 2016. Of those 12, eight appear to be from individuals.
While companies often appeal their assessments, we can’t recall this many individuals contesting their tax bills since we began reporting in 2009.
Also, the jury will consider cutting the tax millage levied for library operation and maintenance from 4.62 to 3.25 mils. If adopted, property owning Lincoln Parish taxpayers will save nearly $600 thousand.
Prior to the jury meeting, several committees will meet, beginning at 5:00 PM.
Finance Committee – 5:00 PM
Solid Waste & Recycling Committee – 6:00 PM
Public Works Committee – 6:30 PM
