The proposal took a lead when early ballots were cast, which put the proposition up 5-0 for approval.

The 10-mill property tax millage is renewed for 10 years for the district in the far eastern part of Livingston Parish.

The millage will raise an estimated $17,471 annually for Fire District 11, according to the proposition.

Funding will go to purchasing fire trucks and other firefighting equipment, the proposition said.

It will also help build a building to store firefighting equipment and to serve as an office and communications center for the district.
