School 1/2¢ Tax Begins October 1, 2020

A new 1/2¢ parishwide sales tax will be collected from purchases made after October 1, 2020, after the Lincoln Parish School Board this morning ratified last Saturday’s election, and enacted an ordinance to make it law.

See here the ordinance.

Superintendent Mike Milstead said that the new tax would enable the district “to do a little better” toward the employees’ pay, and should make Lincoln teachers among the top 1/3 best paid in the state.

Eight of the twelve board members were present, and all voted for the resolution and ordinance in the 10 minute meeting.
