Overview

BGR analyzes two 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. 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.
