Shreveport Mayor Ollie Tyler’s push to get voters to renew six property taxes paid off. 

Voters approved all six tax renewals that help fund city services and employee benefits. 

Prop one continues funding for street repairs, prop two continues funds for parks and community centers, prop three maintains city employee salaries, prop four covers police and fire uniforms and equipment, prop five is for employee pension, health and life insurance and prop six supports three separate shifts for police patrol.

In total, the taxes generate around $11 million in revenue for the city.
