Council delays taxes on ballot
DONALDSONVILLE - The Ascension Parish Council has postponed a vote to put proposed taxes and fees on the election ballot until later this month.
The move likely ensures the items would not go before voters on Nov. 6 with a proposed parish half-cent sales tax for road improvements.
Fire district officials said they would present to the council on July 19 the ballot resolution, still unfinished, for the firefighting funding package.
The deadline to submit applications with the state Bond Commission to place propositions on the Nov. 6 ballot is July 18.
