Capital Improvements Plan Early Voting Through Saturday

On November 14, 2009, the citizens in the special taxing district of East Baton Rouge Parish will vote on a capital improvements plan to address infrastructure needs for public safety and the protection of property, drainage improvement, and economic development and job creation. The capital improvements will be financed through a series of bond issues supported by a One-half of One Percent (1/2%) Sales & Use Tax and a 9.9-mill property tax authorized to be levied and collected, subject to voter approval, by the Parish of East Baton Rouge Capital Improvements District, a parishwide taxing district.
