When you look at Measure A on the Nov. 7 ballot, think about how it will affect your local park and recreation programs.
The measure would authorize a 1/8 cent sales tax in San Mateo County -- at an annual cost per person of $18.10 -- for parks and recreation functions.
Among specific annual allocations to your towns:
- Atherton, $205,000
- Menlo Park, $328,733
- Portola Valley, $205,000
- Woodside, $205,000
- Ladera Recreation District, $90,660
- Midpeninsula Open Space District, $634,620.
Does anyone out there know how the local towns plan to spend this money?
