SCHOOL PARCEL TAX: This is it (poll)
Alameda’s Board of Education is expected to vote Tuesday to put a fresh parcel tax before voters in March 2011. The tax, which would charge homeowners and commercial property owners alike 32 cents per square foot of building they own with a $7,999 per-parcel cap, would raise around $12 million a year. Seniors and certain disabled people would be exempt from the tax, which would replace the school district’s existing and soon-to-sunset Measure A and Measure H taxes.
So here’s our question: Will you vote for it?
