Parcel Tax For Bay Restoration?
Original post made by Jack Hickey on Jun 30, 2011
Excerpt: "Former Assembly Member Sally Lieber will discuss the proposed Cargill development in Redwood City, as well as a proposal for a 2012 parcel tax to support Bay restoration."
I propose that such noble efforts should be supported from within the 1% property taxes now collected. Since the incumbents can't decide which programs deserve more support than others, let the voters decide.
I have referred to this as the Meritorious Programs Act. If voters were presented with an opportunity to allocate a small percentage of the 1% tax to restore the bay through purchase of property rights, you might get some action. The key here, of course, is there would be NO NEW TAXES.
