Possible Sales Tax Increase in New Iberia

Revenue is down in the city of New Iberia and that has city officials looking at ways to bring it up. According to New Iberia Mayor Pro Tem Dan Doerle, a vote on a half-cent sales tax increase dedicated for police protection is one way of raising revenue. Doerle says the money would generate 3.5 million dollars and help off-set the 6.2 million dollar contract they pay to the sheriff's office for protection. Without the tax increase, the city may be left looking at other ways to free-up money.
