Ville Platte City Council Meeting

February 11, 2016

 

   The Ville Platte City Council, Tuesday, approved giving property owners an additional three weeks to pay their property taxes without paying a delinquent fee.

Those who already paid the delinquent fees would  get the fees reimbursed. Now, the deadline will be March 3 to pay your city property taxes without having to pay a delinquent fee.
