Funding for roads in Livingston Parish is on the ballot on Election Day and Parish President Ricks says, despite having wide spread approval in 2006 when it was last renewed, he is worried anti-tax sentiment could wreck the renewal this time around. On the ballot, voters will have to decide whether to renew a one cent sales tax or let it lapse. The tax was originally approved in 1997 and was renewed in 2006. It funds $14 million dollars in road projects and $5 million for the parish jail. Ricks said the parish does not have the tax base to fund either the jail or road projects should the renewal fail.
