Trustees of the new Central Community school system, which split off from the East Baton Rouge Parish school district last year, have proposed a $100 million bond issue supported by increases in the parish sales tax and property tax.

Voters will be asked to consider an increase in the sales tax to 2.5% from 2% and an undetermined increase in the property tax rate. No date has been set for the election.
