LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Lake Charles City Council has called a special election in May for voters to consider two tax renewals.

One is a 25-year one cent sales tax renewal that will generate about 21-million dollars. The other is a ten-year quarter cent sales tax that will bring in a little over 5.3-million dollars. Both items help the city cover employee contributions and benefits.

The election date is scheduled for Saturday, May 3, 2014.
