On December 11, 2021, voters in Jefferson Parish will decide whether to renew two property tax millages on the ballot that directly impact the quality of life for Jefferson Parish residents. These millages have been in place since 2005 and help fund public safety, parks, culture, economic development, and senior services in Jefferson Parish.

The first proposition is a 1 mill renewal that will be divided equally between The Jefferson Court and Judicial Service Fund and The Jefferson Community Park and Culture Service Fund. 

The second proposition is a 2-1/2 mill renewal that will fund the criminal justice system, cultural and park facilities, business development, and services for the elderly.

These millages are not new taxes, but renewals at previously authorized rates approved by the Jefferson Parish voters. If approved again, they will be collected for a period of 10 years starting in 2025.
