VIDALIA — Concordia Parish voters renewed Saturday a 10-year, 13-mill tax levied by the school district.

With all 25 precincts reporting, the unofficial results of the election had 65.35 percent of voters casting ballots for the measure — a total of 1,758 votes — approving the tax renewal, while 34.65 percent of voters — 932 — voted against it.

The millage is used to support the school district’s debt service and for salary supplements. It was last renewed in 2004.
