re: The average sewer fee in EBR is $49.37 per month - doubleb
[quote]Honest question: What's a normal fee? What do the pay in Austin, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, etc? [/quote] Those are all way larger than BR/EBR. I'd like to know how we compare with Little Rock, Knoxville, Louisville, Tulsa, etc. and respective counties....

re: The average sewer fee in EBR is $49.37 per month - doubleb
Six years is a long time and when they raise sales tax to 10 percent that's big. Then they raise sewer feed 4% for six years, that adds up. Then they added more property taxes too plus reassessed properties were taxed higher. A more react study had us 31....

re: The average sewer fee in EBR is $49.37 per month - doubleb
[quote] I don't know where you're hearing this La is a heavily taxed state.[/quote] Most studies show us to be low or in the middle, none have us high. But in EBR where we pay more property taxes and sewer fees I'm wondering how we stack up to comparable counties/parishes....

The average sewer fee in EBR is $49.37 per month - doubleb
which is nearly 600 dollars a year. It increases 4% each January. We also pay a half cent sales tax for the sewer system. We are paying for a large settlement with the Feds for sewer, but I'm curious as to what other cities and counties of equal size pay. Is 49 plus a month low? High? Also I ...

re: The Advocate calls for Tarsha and Jackson to resign from COA - doubleb
The truth is that the COA, BREC and the Library System have very little oversight and kind of do what they want. They have their own revenue stream, and our elected officials seem to ignore them and just let them do their thing. I know they all have boards that oversee their directors, but the...

re: Who was the last elected Louisiana representative to really bring home the bacon? - doubleb
I have not seen one study where it's even close to being revenue neutral for the state. It's really not even close. Proponents are reduced to telling us it increases tourism to justify the large shortfall. No objective study can demonstrate that we are close to breaking even, or that the objec...

An elite closer is a luxury that top teams have. - doubleb
What good is an elite closer if you aren't at least tied going into the 8th or even better the 9th inning? Ideally you'd like to have a lead going into the opponent's ninth where the elite closer prevents any kind of rally. In other words teams without starting pitching and a good bullpen will no...
