Sidney Torres must have made up the difference

The mayor spent all last spring trying to get this police and fire millage through the legislature. And then spent all last fall trying to make sure it passed via statewide ballot.  So the next step now is... well, nevermind.
Having won those permissions, however, the administration’s interest in raising the millage rates has cooled. There are no plans in place to ask local voters to approve higher tax rates for the two departments, and such an increase may no longer be needed, Landrieu said.

“We haven’t decided whether to do it or decided whether it’s necessary,” the mayor said Wednesday.
