Terrebonne Voters to Decide on Water Tax

Terrebonne Parish voters probably will decide May 4 whether to approve a property tax designed to pay for water service.

The Courier reports the Parish Council voted this past week to put the 2.11-mill property tax on the ballot. The council must still ratify the measure Jan. 23 after a public hearing.

The tax is a requirement for Terrebonne to join the Bayou Lafourche Freshwater District, which supplies Terrebonne with 80 percent of its drinking water.
