ST. FRANCISVILLE - The West Feliciana Parish Library's board will ask voters in March to approve funding for a new library on property donated four years ago.

The March 24 propositions include a $3.5 million construction bond issue that bond attorney Alan Offner estimated will require levying about 1.15 mills in property taxes annually to repay the bonds over 20 years.

The library's Board of Control also is asking voters to continue the library's operations tax for 20 years, but at 1.5 mills instead of the 1-mill tax that is expiring after this year.

Library Director Glenna Fallin says a mill generates about $265,000 annually in West Feliciana Parish.
