West Bank Levees and St. Tammany Charter Changes

• Bureau of Governmental Research


BGR analyzes two property tax propositions meant to sustain west bank flood protection systems and three proposed St. Tammany charter amendments before voters on November 21, 2015. The tax propositions include a new tax for the West Jefferson Levee District and a tax renewal for the Algiers Levee District in New Orleans. Both levee districts are governed by the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority – West. The St. Tammany amendments address mandatory periodic review of the Parish’s home rule charter, legal representation for Parish Government, and the removal of charter provisions establishing personnel policies and procedures and Parish departments.
