Approval of tax assessments has been pushed back to October to await the outcome of a special election for the Road District B tax.

Webster Parish Tax Assessor Morris Guin said assessments are nearly complete, but they don’t have the numbers in yet.

The Road District B tax, which funds road repairs and projects in the north end of Webster Parish, failed in the December 2016 election, and the police jury called for a special election for Oct. 14 in hopes of getting it passed. It is not a new tax, but rather a tax renewal.

“That’s what’s holding everything up,” he said.
