In the event that your taxes are not paid by a certain date, the Sheriff's Office will advertise your property for sale to the general public to collect the unpaid taxes. On the advertised date, the property will be subjected to a tax sale. If no one buys the property at the tax sale, the property will then be adjudicated to the Parish of East Baton Rouge in compliance with the laws of the State of Louisiana. The records in this dataset reflect the most current adjudicated property listing.
Listing of all purchase orders and contracts issued to procure goods and/or services within City-Parish.
In the City-Parish, a PO/Contract is made up of two components: a header and one or many detail items that comprise the overarching PO/Contract. The header contains information that pertains to the entire PO/Contract. This includes, but is not limited to, the total amount of the PO/Contract, the department requesting the purchase and the vendor providing the goods or services. The detail item(s) contain information that is specific to the individual item ordered or service procured through the PO/Contract. The item/service description, item/service quantity and the cost of the item is located within the PO/Contract details. There may be one or many detail items on an individual PO/Contract. For example, a Purchase Order for a computer equipment may include three items: the computer, the monitor and the base software package.
Both header information and detail item information are included in this dataset in order to provide a comprehensive view of the PO/Contract data. The Record Type field indicates whether the record is a header record (H) or detail item record (D). In the computer purchase example from above, the system would display 4 records – one header record and 3 detail item records.
It should be noted header information will be duplicated on all detail items. No detail item information will be displayed on the header record.
This dataset depicts the expansion of the Baton Rouge city limits from 1817 to the present. All individual annexations since 1949 are depicted as well as select snapshots of the city boundary dating back to the original incorporation of the city of Baton Rouge.
City-Parish employees' annual salaries and other payroll related information. Information is calculated after the last payroll is run for the year specified. Some fields, such as job title and department, are accurate as of the time the data was captured for Open Data BR. For example, if an employee worked for three departments throughout the year, only the department they worked for at the time we collected the data will be shown.
