Portola Valley School District parcel tax renewal on March ballot

 

The Portola Valley School District board passed a resolution on Nov. 20 to put renewal of the parcel tax on the March ballot, according to Superintendent Roberta Zarea.

The parcel tax, which passed in 2013 with 69% of the vote, is set to expire in June 2021 and generates about $1.2 million annually. Measure O consolidated two expiring measures: Measure C (with an annual tax of $290 per parcel) and Measure D ($168 per parcel) and increased the rate by $123 per parcel to $581, district Chief Business Officer Connie Ngo said.

The election takes place on March 3. Two-thirds of voters must approve the tax for it to pass.
