LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) - Livingston Parish voters will get a second chance to approve funding for the parish health unit, Live Oak recreation and Holden fire district in May, but a proposal to fund parish-wide animal control has been put on hold.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1zRv9Zi ) the Parish Council voted Thursday night to put a 2.5-mill property tax to fund the parish health unit on the May 2 ballot. The facility was previously funded through a 5-mill tax, but voters rejected its renewal in November.

A 15-mill tax for Recreation District 2 and an 11.1-mill tax for Fire District 10 in Holden also will be on the May 2 ballot, after both renewals were defeated in December.

Councilman Ricky Goff’s proposal to seek a 1-mill tax to fund parish-wide animal control has been delayed.
