Citizen’s Guide: Public Health Investment
Please Vote on Tuesday, November 6.
The citizens of St. Tammany Parish invest $2.9 million each year in public health through a dedicated ad valorem tax of 1.84 mills. This millage will be before voters for renewal on November 6, 2012.
The largest expenditure from this fund supports Suicide Prevention in St. Tammany Parish.
As you know, there has been a critical shortage of mental health services in southeastern Louisiana since Hurricane Katrina. The closure or reorganization of Southeast Hospital will only raise the need for health services.
By providing facility support, the parish enables Community Health Centers to provide sliding scale fees for medical care to citizens in need. This has become critical as many families have temporarily lost health care benefits while seeking new employment.
This life-saving millage is only $23 per year on a home assessed at two hundred thousand dollars.
Here is how your dollars will be invested in our community:
2013 Proposed Budget
Ad Valorem Tax $2,962,746
Interest Income $25,000
Mandated State Fees ...
