    Concerning Both Proposition #1 & #2

    “The LP Police Jury will have a renewal of a 4.41 mill operating levy for road construction and road maintenance on the ballot on December 10, 2016. This levy, in place since 1957, provides funds for the construction, maintenance and improvements to parish roads and bridges,” explains Courtney Hall, LP Police Jury Administrator.  Hall went on to say, “Renewal of these levies is critical in order to allow the Parish to continue providing the maintenance and improvements to parish roads and bridges that the public expects from their tax dollars.

    The Police Jury maintains approximately 450 miles of roads and right of ways by providing equipment and personnel to resurface the roads, mow the right of ways and maintain drainage. The Parish also maintains 48 bridges, 27 of which are treated timber construction and are reaching the end of their useful lifespans.

    Each millage renewal will cost a homeowner with a  property tax valued at $100,000.00   approximately $11.03 per year. A property with a tax value of $150,000.00 would pay $33.08 per year, and a property with a tax value of $200,000.00 would pay $55.13 per year.

    "In order to continue the legacy of having one of the best parish road systems in the State of Louisiana and as Lincoln Parish continues to experience vibrant growth, the renewal of these millages is vital to our continued ability to provide and maintain the roads and bridges Lincoln Parish citizens expect  and deserve.” LP Administrator
