Drainage taxes on Tangipahoa ballot

ROSELAND, La. (AP) - Voters in the Roseland, Amite and Independence areas will decide Dec. 8 on two millage propositions supporting drainage work.
    
Tangipahoa Parish's Gravity Drainage District 4 is seeking renewal of a pair of ad valorem taxes that fund drainage work and canal clearing.
    
A five-year, 2-mill tax running from 2013 to 2017 would be split, half to maintenance and operations of the district and half to construction. The millage is projected to generate $76,000 annually.
    
A 10-year, 3-mill tax running from 2013 to 2022 would go toward maintenance, construction and other improvements to the district's drainage works. It would generate an estimated $115,000 each year.
