School tax slated for April 2
Monday's decision came after months of heated discussion about how the local school system will balance future budgets and upgrade schools in the area.
This year, the system faces a shortfall of about $400,000, which is expected to grow each year if additional sources of revenue are not found.
Spearsville Board member Mike Holley, one of the major opponents of the tax, said he does not believe the people of the parish will support this tax. He said local citizens want a long-term solution.
