Garyville Talk Goes On

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, July 8, 2008

The Garyville Incorporation Committee held another public hearing on Monday night to discuss the issues surrounding the proposed vote for incorporation, currently scheduled to take place on July 19. Russell Starns, from the town of Central, was the guest speaker to tell about Central’s most recent efforts over a year ago to incorporate. In top photo, one man got irate, asking committee leaders to “put your hand on a Bible and swear taxes won’t go up.” However Starns said that in Central, “services got 10 times better and taxes didn’t go up.” The key issue remains whether industry tax money will come to Garyville or not.
