Recreation tax renewal proposal will be on November ballot

At last Thursday’s Pine Prairie Council Meeting, Mayor Quint West reported proposals for tax renewals will be on the ballot for the November election. Among the renewals is a recreation tax that is set to expire this year.
Mayor West, on Tuesday, issued the following statement on the proposals:
“I would like to inform our citizens that there will be a set of renewals on the ballot, and one of which expires this year.”
“The tax expiring this year is our recreation tax. This tax gives us the ability and the means to maintain our sporting facilities, community center, and other activities dealing with recreation.”
“Our village has always stood strong in renewals, and I have total faith that our voters will continue this trend.”
“I also want to stress that this tax is a renewal. This is not a new tax.”
Also on the ballot in November are proposals to renew taxes for police protection, street maintenance, and street construction. These taxes are set to expire next year.
The election is set for November 16, which is the same date as the Gubernatorial General Election.
