CATS Board to hold public hearing about millage roll forward rates

August 20, 2020

BATON ROUGE_ The Board of the Capital Area Transit System will hold a public hearing before its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, regarding rolling forward its millage rates.

When taxes were reassessed in East Baton Rouge, this resulted in an increased value to taxable property in the city of Baton Rouge and the city of Baker.  As a result, CATS and other government agencies can opt to keep the tax at the rate residents approved.  This process is referred to as “rolling forward” the tax. For CATS, this action could result in its collecting as much as $1,020,787.60 in additional revenue for the City of Baton Rouge and $55,722.91 in additional revenue for the City of Baker. 

CATS will consider rolling forward the millage rates for the Baton Rouge and the Baker tax at its regular meeting on Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at 4:35 p.m. or immediately after the public hearing.  

  • WHAT: CATS Public Hearing
  • WHEN: September 22, 2020 at 4:30 p.m.
  • WHERE: CATS Administrative Office, 350 North Donmoor, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70806
