Lincoln School Board to Vote on Property Tax Hike

The Lincoln Parish School Board will vote next Tuesday on whether or not to proceed with a May 4 parish-wide property tax referendum for assorted capital projects and school operations. If the board votes no, the tax proposition dies. If the board votes yes, an election will be scheduled.

The two resolutions would levy a 9.8 mil tax for ten years for operations, and a 1.8 mil tax for twenty years for the capital projects.

See here the resolutions.

See here a breakdown on how the money is to be spent.

The two largest expenditures for the operations tax are $1.2 million for the summer school program and $1.4 million for general operations.

The largest capital project is $4 million for construction of sixth-grade classrooms at Ruston Junior High. Currently, sixth-graders attend I. A. Lewis. That facility will be used for the summer school program.

The meeting will be Tuesday, January 8, 10:30 AM, Cypress Springs School, 1040 Saratoga Street.

Here’s the agenda.

    Appears there is an epidemic of kingdom building amongst the governing bodies in Lincoln Parish of late. Has there been a directive given by a central puppet-master to proceed with a party agenda? For decades leftists have infiltrated opposing parties for such shenanigans.
