Lincoln Parish residents will be asked to vote on three millage tax renewals and one new sales tax Saturday.

The school board renewals include a parishwide tax of 10.5 mills and a Ruston district tax for 2.51 mills. One mill is equal to $1 of tax per every $1,000 of real estate value above the $75,000 homestead exemption amount.

The parishwide tax is restricted for use on purchasing textbooks, instructional materials and school buses; constructing, operating and maintaining school buildings and facilities; offsetting reductions in federal and state school funding; funding mandated federal and state programs and funding employee and retiree health insurance.
