For anyone residing in Kenner, you should vote for the Fire Millages and here’s why:
If funding for the Fire Department stays stagnant, we will slip to a Class 3 insurance rating, which will cost the average $150,000 home an average of $37.00 a year increase in insurance. With the passage of this millage we can achieve a Class 1 rating.
Net Residential Cost after Insurance Rating Savings, if we are able to Achieve a Class 1 Rating, for a $150,000 Home Millage increase $45.00 per year. Average Insurance savings for Class 1 Rating - $33.00 per year. Net cost of Millage increase $12.00 per year $12.00 a year for better service or $37.00 a year for more insurance and service that will get worse, your choice. And by the way, property tax (the millage) is a deduction on itemized returns, insurance is not.
