SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Two propositions to help fund and improve the recreational facilities in Ward 3 passed easily Saturday.

The first proposition, a $16 million bond, was approved 66 percent to 34 percent. The bond will pay for establishing, acquiring, constructing, improving, extending and maintaining the recreational facilities.

The second proposition, a 10-year, 5.5 maintenance millage, was approved 64 percent to 36 percent. The millage will pay for maintaining and operating the recreation facilities. It is expected to generate $3.2 million per year.

A plan for a bike path is one of the many possible upgrades that have been discussed in Ward 3.

All results are unofficial until verified by the Louisiana Secretary of State's Office.
