The March 20, 2021 ballot proved to be a good day for the residents of Goldonna. The local residents voted to approve a 1% tax that will be designated for road repairs within Goldonna. “I am so proud of our citizens for recognizing the need for the 1% tax. This is a huge step in moving Goldonna forward and it’s because of the great people in our community,” said Mayor Jennifer Smith.
Goldonna Elementary School is gearing up and getting ready for Pre-k registration and enrollment for the 2021-2022 School Year. You can call the school at 318-727-9449 or reach out them on their Facebook page.

The Goldonna Community Egg Hunt will be held Saturday April 3, 2021 from 10:00am until 1:00pm at the City Hall. This event is free and open to the public. The children will be broken up into 0-3, 4-6, and 7-12. There will be a scavenger hunt for the children 13 years and above. Prize eggs will be hidden as well.
