Calcasieu Parish voters have a few tax propositions, judges, city councilmen and mayors to vote out or in today.  Of course your precinct and district will determine what’s on your ballot today.  On a broad scope, here’s what’s at stake in today’s April 5th election in Calcasieu Parish.  Polls will be open from 8:30 A.M. – 6:00 P.M.

There are four tax propositions for voters to make decisions on and they include:

1.) A ¼ cent sales tax to expand sewage lines in unincorporated areas.  Parish Administrator, Bryan Beam explained, “A lot of the sewage from individuals systems around the parish and residential areas especially goes into our rivers where people love to have recreation activity.” Beam added, “We’ve had requests from hotels to be near the airport, but they require sewage.”

2.) Maintenance tax renewal affecting Waterworks District Five of Wards Three and Eight.  Director of Public Works, Allen Wainwright said, “It represents about 25% of the overall revenue in budget and so it’s very significant to be able to take care of the assets the district owns and provide good clean water for those citizens.”

3.) Mosquito control tax is up for renewal for the entire parish.

4.) Finally, a criminal justice tax renewal.

Other items that may show-up on your ballot are:

District Judge 14th Judicial District Court, ES 1, Div. F

Mayor City of Sulphur

Councilman Districts 1-4, City of Sulphur
