In the July 31 edition in an article entitled, “Coming of Age,” we realized a mistake was made in the dollar amount for the increase the Ascension Parish Assessor’s Office has generated for the governing entities.  The office provided an increase of $10 million last year and will have over $10 million this year, having a combined total of over $20 million dollars total increase to date. Also, while the office paid for the updating of the website out of its regular budget, the mapping that’s accessible from the website was paid for by all the governing entities, city and parish, whose budgets are funded by ad valorem taxes. Please accept the corrections and we regret the mistake.
