Voting is at the regular polling places throughout the parish. All registered parish voters are eligible to vote: this is the one and only tax to fund the entire library system ( the main library in Ville Platte and the five branch libraries in Mamou, Basile, Chataignier, Pine Prairie, and Turkey Creek). There is no other tax that funds the main library or any other part(s) of the library system. For more information, please click on the “Tax Election” icon to the right of this message, or call 363-1369 (main library) or the branch nearest you.
Early voting for continuation of the property tax that funds the library system will be held throughout this week at the courthouse, except for Friday April 22nd (courthouse closed for Good Friday). If you’re a property owner, you are already paying the millage requested in the tax proposition.* For more information about the tax and how it is used by the library, please click on the “Tax Election” icon to the right of this message.
* Millages undergo slight adjustments during the years of a tax due to changes in property values and increases or decreases in tax revenues. For more information about millage calculations and how and when millages may be adjusted during the years of a tax, please contact the tax assessor’s office.
The library system will be closed for Good Friday and the Easter weekend. We wish everybody a happy Easter. The main library and its branches will open on their regular schedules Monday April 25th. The Library Board meeting orginally scheduled for that day has been canceled. It will be rescheduled in May.
Early voting for continuation of the library’s existing parish wide property tax is April 16-23 at the courthouse, from 8:30 to 6 (closed Friday the 22nd for Good Friday). For more information, please click on the “Tax Election” icon to the right of this message.
The Evangeline Genealogical and Historical Society will meet at the Main Library on Saturday April 16 at 9:30. Guest speakers are Suzy Lemoine and Janis Landreneau. Everybody is invited.
The Library system (main and all branches) will close at 3 p.m. today due to an impending storm front with high winds and possible tornadoes. We apologize for the inconvenience.
