Reminder! Public Hearing regarding upcoming Sales Tax Election set for Monday

The Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ) invites everyone that wants to know more about why they are asking residents of Jackson Parish to vote to add one cent to the current sales tax rate in an upcoming election to attend the first of two scheduled Public Hearings this Monday evening at 5:15pm. The hearing will be held at the Charles H. Garrett Community Center, located at 182 Industrial Drive in Jonesboro, just prior to the regularly scheduled monthly session of the JPPJ.

Over the next several weeks the Jackson Parish Journal will be running a series on why parish public officials deem it necessary to pass the added amount to the current sales tax, what would be the effect if the tax doesn’t pass and where Jackson Parish currently stands in relation to neighboring parishes regarding sales tax figures.
