Trustees of the St. John the Baptist Parish School Board are asking voters to approve a $46 million bond package for capital projects in November. The bonds would be supported by a 20-year rededication of 10 mills of the district’s 18-mill property tax.

Currently all 18 mills are dedicated to debt service. The district, which is located about 25 miles west of New Orleans, lowered the rate from 22 mills in June.
