Trustees of the St. Helena Parish School District have set a third vote on a property tax increase and bond package smaller than two previous proposals voted down over the past 11 months.

Voters in the district will decide Nov. 4 on an $8 million bond measure, which will require a 15-mill property tax increase for 25 years, and a 20-mill, 10-year property tax hike to raise school employees’ annual salaries by an average of $4,000. Both measures must be approved before either can go into effect.
