School Tax Vote Set for Next April

A Saturday, April 29, 2017 election was set at last night’s meeting of the Lincoln Parish School Board (LPSB) for voters to consider whether or not to re-impose three property taxes parish-wide for Lincoln schools.

Two of the millages are for 4.94 mils, and the other is for 8.98. Total collections are estimated at about $8 million. They are set to expire in 2018 and 2019.

The purpose of the taxes are:

4.94 mils “for the purpose of constructing, equipping and/or improving school buildings in the District or for the maintenance thereof.”

4.94 mils “for the purpose of giving additional support for operation of public schools in the District.”

8.98 mils “for the purpose of giving additional support to public elementary and secondary schools, more specifically as follows:(i) 5O% for paying salaries and benefits of teachers and other employees of the Lincoln Parish School Board, and (ii) 5O% for paying retirees single coverage health insurance premiums, paying for computer technology equipment, software, maintenance and training, cost of mandated summer school program, and for operating, improving and maintaining school buildings, facilities, vehicles and equipment.”

See here the resolution.
