If you want a good seat, it is advised that you get there early for the public hearing that will be held at 5:15 pm on Monday, April 12th prior the regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the Jackson Parish Police Jury (JPPJ). This is the second and final public hearing regarding the upcoming Sales Tax election called by the Jackson Parish Police Jury.
“We are expecting an overflow crowd,” said JPPJ president Amy Magee. “I hope that is the case as we encourage residents to give their opinions and it also allows for the facts of why the increase is desperately needed to be heard.”
At issue is the upcoming election set for Saturday, April 24th, where Jackson Parish residents will decide if they want to see an 1% increase in the current sales tax rate.
