Voters in a few parts of the New Orleans metropolitan area will go to the polls Saturday to decide on a handful of candidates and issues.
Harahan and parts of St. Tammany Parish are the only areas with elections.
In Harahan, voters will decide whether to renew a 5-mill property tax that brings in about $400,000 a year for the Fire Department, or about 40 percent of its budget. The renewal would be for 10 years.
In St. Tammany, voters in Sun will elect a mayor, and residents of two of Covington’s seven City Council districts, B and E, will cast ballots for council members. The other council seats are not contested.
Residents of St. Tammany School Board District No. 14 in the Slidell area will choose between two candidates to succeed board member Ray Alfred, who died last year.
Finally, voters in St. Tammany Fire Protection District No. 1, covering Slidell and nearby areas, will decide on renewing a $39 annual parcel fee that brings in about $1.2 million a year. The renewal would be for 10 years.
Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
