We will have an opportunity to vote on some police jurors in October. Remember those serving now who voted ( all voted "yea") to allow a new tax on landowners to be placed on the ballot in 2012 to build a new library building when the one we have is completely sufficient for our poor, rural parish that is losing population. Property taxes always pass because non-property owners can pass a tax on property owners. One item the new tax was to be used for was laptops to be checked out. When the new tax passes property owners with taxable property will be double taxed to supply laptops.
The Winn paper reported 9/7/11, p. 10A, that Winn Parish Library is participating in an $8.8 million dollars grant to supply laptops to libraries for checking out to users. So, without the new property tax we are already being taxed to supply laptops. Taxable property owners are being asked for even more of their hard earned money which is in short supply to buy more laptops for the parish library to loan to users. Winn library began checking out laptops, Monday, September 12, 2011.
It is my opinion we are being taxed too much for libraries. But the present jury members voted to allow a new tax on property owners to be placed on the ballot in 2012.
Thankfully the voters defeated (April 6. 2013) the Police Jury 1% sales tax that they designed to take garbage pick -up funding away from all the taxpayers in Winnfield. The jury allowed this library tax to be put on the ballot which passed because property owners can have taxes voted on them by non property owners. I'm tired of more and more taxes.
