St. Charles Parish Assessor's Millage Meeting

The St. Charles Parish Assessor's office will hold a public hearing on July 30 at 2 p.m. at the St. Charles Parish Courthouse in Hahnville to consider levying additional or increased millage rates without further voter approval.

Another plan calls for the adopting of the adjusted millage rate and rolling forward to a millage that would not exceed the prior year's maximum. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, which impacts the amount of property taxes residents are charged annually. For more information prior to the meeting, residents can contact the Tax Assessors office at 985-783-6281.

Wildcats use spring to evaluate, retool
Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux calls spring an evaluation period, and given the Wildcats need to replace six starters on offense and nine on defense going into next season, it wasn’t a time he, nor his coaching staff, would take lightly.
