With a nearly debt-free town, Scott asked the town council to consider not asking for the 7.52 mills of annual property tax from its citizens. The town collected more than $13,000 in total property taxes last year.
"This money is the good citizens of Pollock's anyway, and we're in a good enough financial state to leave it in their pockets," Scott said. The council unanimously voted July 9 to not send out property tax notices this year. The town reserves the right to send out notices in the future if necessary. This does not affect parish or state taxes.The very idea! A town decides that it doesn't need tax money to operate, so it doesn't collect it. This is revolutionary. Talk to your local officials about NOT collecting tax money this year. With good management, they shouldn't need it.
