On December 5, New Orleans voters are being asked to decide on a package of millages (property taxes) that will be placed separately on the ballot as follows: (1) Infrastructure and Maintenance, (2) Early Childhood Education and Libraries (3) Housing and Economic Development. When combined, the millage package will not raise taxes.
