LCG, Scott Councils Back LPSS Sales Tax
This week, the Lafayette Consolidated Government and Scott City Council each adopted resolutions to support a half-cent sales tax proposed by the Lafayette Parish School System.
LPSS Spokesman Randy Bernard said in a press release Friday the municipalities endorsed the tax proposition intended to fund the replacement of 248 portable temporary buildings throughout the school district.
Lafayette Parish voters will have their turn to endorse, or disapprove, of the 10-year tax at the polls on April 29.
These two latest endorsements, added to those from Duson and Broussard, show support for the tax from most of the parish's municipalities. The city councils in Carencro and Youngsville have yet to pass resolutions, neither in favor, nor against the proposition.
