Panel approves crime district fee elections in New Orleans

A state panel cleared the way Wednesday for a Feb. 1 vote on renewal of parcel fees to finance operations of six Orleans Parish crime prevention districts.

The state Bond Commission’s Ad Hoc Election Subcommittee found the paperwork was in order to send the proposals to district voters.

The propositions would renew and in one instance — Tamaron Subdivision — increase parcel fees levied on property in the districts.
