CHACKBAY, La. (AP) - Chackbay landowners will pay $45 a year per occupied, addressed home or business on their property if voters in the Oct. 24 election approve a 10-year parcel fee renewal to benefit the local fire department.

Lafourche Parish Fire District 8-C, which contracts with the Chackbay Volunteer Fire Department for services, is proposing a renewal of the parcel fee, which voters first passed April 23, 2005.

Department President Joshua Falgoust tells The Courier (https://bit.ly/1QKTfe1) said the parcel fee has paid for a new fire truck, hoses and other equipment to help maintain the fire department’s ranking with the Property Insurance Association of Louisiana.

Falgoust said Chackbay was a class 7 before the fee was implemented but is now a class 5. Homeowners may see a drop in insurance premiums because of the lower rating.
