The special election to RENEW the current property tax for fire and police maintenance & operating costs will be held on May 1st, not May 18th as was first reported in the Times.
The police and fire department have already suffered severe cuts, and simply can't afford any more.
Speaking of The Times, I was just reading some of the birdbrained comments that were left on the article about the renewal. My suspicion is that they were posted by discontented people who probably don't even live in Bossier City.
Of course I'll allow any and all comments on My Bossier, always have and always will.
But you can save the drama for your mama, no one's going to buy it here. This tax is important and must be renewed.
I have full faith that the people of Bossier City will do whatever is necessary to support their police and fire departments.
