fire district 7

Fire Protection District 7 will seek to have a 10-mill property and $32 service charge renewed Oct. 12.

LIVINGSTON – The Livingston Parish Council approved the calling of two elections this fall to renew a drainage district’s property millage and a fire district’s millage and service charge

The council approved the resolutions at its May 9 meeting that will be sent to the Secretary of State’s Office.

The first resolution calls an election on Saturday, Oct. 12, for the renewal of a 5-mill tax for Gravity Drainage District No. 1.

The second resolution also calls an election on Saturday, Oct. 12, to renew a 10-mill tax and $32 service fee for each residential or commercial structure in Fire Protection District 7’s area.

Gravity Drainage District 1’s 5-mill property tax would be renewed for 10 years if voters approve it.

Revenue collected would pay the expenses of maintaining and operating drainage works in the district, according to the resolution.

Fire District 7’s two renewal proposals would be for 10 years each for the district located between the Town of Livingston and French Settlement.

Revenue from both sources would pay for maintaining and operating fire protections facilities, and to buy fire trucks and fire-fighting equipment.
