West Feliciana Jurors Reject Tax Increases
ST. FRANCISVILLE, La. (AP) — The West Feliciana Parish Police Jury has turned down opportunities to increase three property taxes to take advantage of higher assessments this year.
The police jury revisited its property taxes Monday because assessors across Louisiana were required this year to reassess property values.
The police jury had an opportunity to pick up about $135,000 in extra revenue because assessments increased, which Juror Mel Percy called a significant tax increase.
The Advocate reports jurors agreed to roll back six different millages from a total of 18.46 mills to 16.69 mills, which would generate the same amount of revenue as last year, before property tax assessments increased.
