Saturday, August 15, 2020 is a very important date for WBR Community Centers because that is the date for the property tax renewal election that funds and maintains our 6 community centers. This vote is a renewal of the existing property millage, NOT a new tax. Our community centers have provided a variety of services for parish residents for many years at very reasonable costs. This tax renewal will allow the Parks and Recreation Dept. to continue to offer these beautiful facilities at such reasonable rates , to continue to enhance the quality of the facilities, and to continue to offer programs for residents of our parish.
