West Baton Rouge Parish awaits fire district

Posted: Updated:

West Baton Rouge Parish will officially have its own fire district in about a year.

The parish council adopted a resolution from the Louisiana Legislature to create the parish-wide fire district by July 1, 2014.

The legislature acted after parish officials were unable to reach a compromise on how to divide $2.5 million in annual fire protection sales tax revenues among six sub-districts.
