    Area Business and Civic Leaders Urge Citizens to Vote “YES” for St. John Parish Public School System Millage renewal on October 7, 2017

                                                           

     

    The River Region Chamber Board of Directors, after consideration and review, at its regularly scheduled meeting on August 24, 2017 voted to support the proposition for renewal of an 8-mill ad valorem tax for the St. John Parish Public School system in an upcoming October 7th ballot.

     

    This renewal for a period of 10 years, beginning in 2019 and ending in 2028, is not a new tax. This renewal can only be used for the following:

    1 mill – Retiree Insurance

    3 mills – Academic Improvements

    4 mills – Employee salaries

     

    The Chamber supports the initiatives made by our local governments to act responsibly to ensure business sustainability and a high quality of life for its residents as they use efficient operations to make proactive progress.
