The Grant Parish Cemetery District shall be a political subdivision of the state.  For carrying out the purposes of the district as provided in this Chapter, under the provisions of the Constitution of Louisiana, the board, as the governing authority of the district, shall have the power to levy an ad valorem tax of not in excess of three mills on the dollar of assessed valuation on all immovable property in the district subject to taxation.  However, no such tax may be imposed unless a majority of the electors voting on a proposition to levy the tax approve the proposition.  The board shall have the authority to call an election, subject to approval by the parish governing authority, for the purpose of imposing such ad valorem taxes.  Any election for the purpose of imposing such a tax shall be held in accordance with Chapter 6-A of the Louisiana Election Code.  The tax, if authorized, shall be collected in the same manner and at the same time as ad valorem taxes on property subject to parish taxation are collected.  The proceeds of any such tax shall be used exclusively for those public cemeteries within the district.
