Moss Bluff, Gillis To Vote On School Tax

LAKE CHARLES, LA (AP) — Voters in the Moss Bluff and Gillis areas will decide Dec. 6 whether to approve a 20-year, $12.7 million bond issue that would pay for a new elementary school.

         The bond issue, proposed by the Calcasieu Parish School Board, would be paid for through property taxes by residents in Bonding District 27. Taxpayers would be assessed about 20 additional mills on property owned. Homeowners with property valued at $100,000 would pay just over $50 a year.

         Superintendent Karl Bruchhaus tells the American Press all predictions indicate that major growth will continue in the Moss Bluff-Gillis area.
