If property becomes adjudicated does it then become the responsibility of the Parish?
No, just because the Parish has a tax interest in the property does not mean the Parish is responsible for any damages or issues that may occur on the property. If you have questions about property standards issues within the City of Shreveport or five miles beyond please contact Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) at 318-673-6440. Outside City limits and beyond five miles of the City of Shreveport, please contact the Caddo Parish Public Works department at 318-226-6930.
