JEFFERSON PARISH, Louisiana: Last week the Jefferson Parish School Board voted to place the Jefferson Parish School Board Bond Measure on hold until 2010. The board ruled that by placing the measure on hold it will give them more time to iron-out the specifics of the proposed capital improvement plan. The plan will be financed by the $200 million bond measure, if approved. specifically the measure calls for a 3.45-mill property tax increase. Five board members voted in favor of placing the measure on the March 27, 2010 ballot. One board member abstained from voting and three voted against the March placement of the measure.
