Jury, CVB need to find compromise
A portion of the park’s funding has traditionally come from a percentage of the hotel-motel sales tax collected by the CVB. The 1 percent total contributed by the CVB was agreed to in return for the Police Jury’s support of the tax in the mid-1980s — at the time a 3 percent tax.
The agreement has been honored for the past two decades and the park has flourished. The Police Jury and the CVB partnership has worked well and the results are an asset to this community.
