SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - In the upcoming Dec 11. election, Shreveport’s 2021 bond proposal will be on voters’ ballots.

There are a total of five propositions, totaling more than $236 million. Some of the propositions include money for public safety, streets, and parks and recreation, among other items.

The Shreveport Fire Department is included under the first proposition.

“We want them to know that your money is going to be well spent. We want you to know we already earmarked where we are going to be placing those funds. What trucks will be replaced what stations have hit the high priority list,” said Assistant Fire Chief Clarence Reese.

He says if the proposition one is passed, it will help SFD buy equipment they need.

“We have trucks over the road right now that are over 25 years old. We have several trucks in the front lines that should be in reserve status right now,” Reese said.

Water, sewage and drainage is under proposition three.

“Passing this bond will help us fix four very important aspects of our water and sewer system. Two for the water system and two for the sewer system,” said Water and Sewage Directo William Daniel.
