Iberia Parish Levee Vote

Posted:

In Iberia Parish, voters decided against a five mill tax and a half cent sales tax to generate seven million dollars to bond with 120 million dollars over the next 30 years for the new levee system.

According to the chairman of the Iberia Parish levee district, years of erosion and development along the wetlands that border Iberia Parish have increased the threat of destruction that hurricanes can cause.

The levee system is projected to cost 420 million dollars.

Both taxes failed to receive enough votes to pass.
