Police Jury to Hike Taxes, Slightly

The Lincoln Parish Police Jury will tomorrow night hold a public hearing for input prior to voting to set the property tax millage rates for 2021.

For 2020, the millage rates were 1.67 and 3.35 for “general alimony,” or for any purpose the jury may choose; and two millages of 4.39 each for roads and bridges.

See here the document.

The new proposed rates are 1.68, 3.37, 4.41, and 4.41.

For 2019, the rates were 1.67, 3.37, 4.41, and 4.41.

Also, tomorrow night’s meeting will be held at the jury’s conference room on the third floor of the Lincoln Parish Court House. This the first time since spring, 2020 that the jury will have met at that location.

Here are the agendas:

Public Works Committee – 6:30 PM

Police Jury – 7:00 PM

    Don’t you just love the way they are avoiding the use of the term “audits” on this agenda? Will we ever know who actually approved those “checks that bypassed proper procedure” or will they scapegoat? History is not kind to this jury.

    Tax increase, do they ever get enough. With the many new houses and business’ that have been built the last 5 years u would think that would, be enough to nullify the need for a tax increase.

    Raising the millage for “general alimony” but lowering the millages for roads and bridges? Lower money for infrastructure but raise money for whatever the LPPJ wants to do with it? Like we trust them to make good decisions? About anything?

    The total tax burden is about the same, but the LPPJ gets to keep more of it for what their general “needs” are. Let’s not worry about roads and bridges. Let’s worry about funding “retreats” and new cars?

    Please tell me I’m not the only one seeing that. And they expect us as taxpayers not to see it?
