Webster Parish’s newest fire district is asking residents to say yes on November 4 to a 10-mil ad valorem (property) tax dedicated to fire protection in the areas outside the town limits of Sibley.
“The Property Insurance Association of Louisiana is forcing the town of Sibley to stop free fire coverage,” Fire District No. 2 board chairman Brent Hunt explained. “This is a new tax. We’ve never paid a fire tax in our district before.”
Fire District 2 was drawn in February of this year by the Webster Parish Police Jury and encompasses areas around Sibley no more than seven miles
