Mill Valley School District bond proposition, Measure C (November 2009)
Measure C authorized the school district to borrow $59.8 million. This is being repaid via a tax of $20 to $30 per $100,000 assessed property-tax value over 25 years.
The construction bonds sought in Measure C were used to rebuild and expand Edna Maguire Elementary School.
Three years after the approval of Measure C, voters in the district approved Measure B, a $196/year parcel tax.
- These final results are from the Marin County elections office.
- The Marin Independent Journal's editorial board recommended to its readers that they vote "yes" on Measure C. They wrote, "Mill Valley's fine schools are attracting more young families. Its aging schools are running out of space. The district needs to build for the present and the future."
The question on the ballot:
|Measure C: "To reconstruct and modernize Mill Valley elementary and middle schools, including installing and constructing fire safety, emergency communications, seismic and disabled access improvements; providing sufficient space for students; and repairing or replacing outdated plumbing, electrical and other vital systems and facilities, shall the Mill Valley School District be authorized to issue $59,800,000 in bonds for Phase 1 of the approved Facilities Master Plan, and establish a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to ensure all expenditures are made according to the plan?"|
