Alderman, W&S4 prop on ballot Sat.
Baldwin voters go to the polls Saturday to choose an alderman to fill an unexpired term.
Candidates Mike J. Caesar Sr. and Margaret C. “Faye” Coleman are in a runoff for the seat left vacant by former alderman Tony Gibson who was removed due to an elections law violation.
Also Saturday, St. Mary Parish Water and Sewer Commission 4 proposes issuing $3 million in revenue bonds.
The election call states the purpose as “cost of constructing, equipping and acquiring extensions and improvements to the waterworks plant and system and sewer and sewerage treatment and disposal facilities of the Commission.”
That extension includes areas along Chitimacha Trail and the Websterville area.
The commission has indicated that payments on the bonds will be covered by current millage revenues and will not result in an increase in customer rates.
Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
