The Propositions

On Nov. 16, voters can RENEW and REDEDICATE existing sales taxes:

These propositions are NOT NEW TAXES and they will NOT increase what you are currently paying in local sales taxes.
The two one-half cent sales taxes are expected to bring in $2.36 million each year


Proposition 1
– Voters in all of West Feliciana Parish are asked to renew a one-half cent sales tax for 10 years, extending it to May 1, 2030, withproceeds to be used as follows: 75% for maintaining operations at West Feliciana Parish Hospital and 25% for repairing, maintaining and improving public roads, drainage and bridges in the parish.

Proposition 2– Voters in West Feliciana Parish, excluding those within the municipality of St. Francisville, are asked to renew a one-half cent sales tax for 10 years, extending it to July 1, 2030, with proceeds to be used as follows: 75% for maintaining operations at West Feliciana Parish Hospital and 25% for repairing, maintaining and improving public roads, drainage and bridges in the parish.

`

A vote to renew 100% of the dedicated funding, with a rededication of 25% of proceeds means:
• 75% ($1.7 million) will continue to fund West Feliciana Hospital’s essential services and EMS/Ambulance Services
• 25% ($600,000) will go to repairing and rebuilding West Feliciana Parish’s worst roads and bridges

The RENEWAL & REDEDICATION allows voters to get MORE services for the SAME cost.
