Law enforcement taxes on Assumption ballot

3 years ago April 13, 2012 Apr 13, 2012 Friday, April 13 2012 Friday, April 13, 2012 7:35:12 AM EDT in News

NAPOLEONVILLE - Assumption Parish voters will cast ballots Saturday on two major tax proposals dedicated to the Assumption Parish Law Enforcement District.

Proposition No. 1 calls for a 10-year, 9.53-mill property tax expected to generate $1.6 million annually, and Proposition No. 2 calls for an additional 10-year, 10-mill property tax, expected to produce $1.7 million per year.

Both proposals are tax renewals that, if voters approve them, would begin in 2014.

Sheriff Mike Waguespack tells The Advocate the two taxes fund almost 50 percent of his overall budget.

The 10-mill tax was first approved 1984, and the 9.53-mill tax in 1994. Both have been renewed every 10 years since.
