Muir Beach Community Service District parcel tax, Measure E (June 2010)
Measure E extended for another 4 years an annual tax of $3,250 for each commercially-zoned parcel in the district, and $300 for each separate, habitable structure on residentially-zoned property, and $300 for all other parcels.
The money raised by the tax was to pay for capital improvements and maintenance of water supply and distribution equipment and facilities.
Leighton Hills, the district manager of Muir Beach Community Services, said, "We are asking our neighbors to renew the tax so that after a few more years we will be able to afford other remaining capital improvement projects, like replacement of very old water mains in the community."
The community had an existing 45-year-old redwood water tank, parts of which had rooted through the tank's 3-inch redwood boards. A project to build a new 200,000 gallon water tank was underway.
About 150 homes and 400 residents were in the Muir Beach Community Service District.
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
- These final, certified results are from the Marin County elections office.
