Parish-wide election this Saturday

This coming Saturday, April 29, there will be a parish-wide election for a proposition of 6.19 mills on all parish property subject to taxation for 8 years beginning in 2036 and ending in 2043. This will amount to an estimated $729,200 to be collected from the tax levy for an entire year. The passing of the millage or ‘mil’ will be used for the purpose of constructing, maintaining and operating public libraries in Claiborne Parish.

This millage will represent a 0.09 increase, due to reappraisal, over the 6.10 mills tax authorized to be levied through the year 2035. This millage passed in the 2011 election.

The Claiborne Parish Police Jury and Claiborne Parish Libraries System humbly ask for the parish residents’ support in renewing this existing tax.

If you are on the mail out program, all absentee ballots must be at the Registrar Voters Office by 4:30 p.m. today, April 28th. 

On Election Day, April 29, residents can vote at the designated polling place between 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.

If you have any questions or concerns please call the CPPJ at 318-927-2222 or the Claiborne Parish Library at 318-927-3845.
