City says ‘no’ to recreation tax
By SHEILA SMITH
The Jennings City Council rejected a proposal from the Jeff Davis Adult Recreation (JDAR) director that would have asked voters to decide on a property tax to expand recreational activities.
Though the city’s recreation department currently offers football, soccer, basketball, baseball, softball and swim to youth of an average age of nine and older, JDAR Director Garrett Mehal told councilmen an additional three mills per year could expand those programs to kids as young as three. He also said such a tax would allow the city to offer more athletic opportunities to adults.
