THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - On Oct. 24, Lafourche Parish voters will decide whether to renew two property taxes for library operations, construction and maintenance.

The taxes make up about 85 percent of the library’s current budget and are set to expire at the end of 2016.

If renewed, they would stay in place through 2026 and bring in an estimated $5.6 million a year.

Library Director Laura Sanders tells The Daily Comet (https://bit.ly/1OIXDMV) approval of the millages will keep the parish’s libraries open and operating with growth for another 10 years.
