Plumas District Hospital bond proposition, Measure A (July 2008)
A Plumas District Hospital bond proposition, Measure A was on the July 22, 2008 ballot for voters living within the boundaries of the Plumas District Hospital special taxation district in Plumas County, where it was approved.
The description of what the likely tax rate would be on the ballot language for Measure A said:
- "The best estimate of the tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the bonds ... is $22.36 per $100,000 of assessed valuation in the 2008-09 fiscal year ... the best estimate of the highest tax rate ... is $87.30 per $100,000 of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2037-38."
However, the rate on the 2009-10 tax bills for the Measure A levy was closer to $121 per $100,000 of assessed value. This led a group of residents to collect signatures to qualify a measure for the 2010 ballot that would limit the Measure A tax levy to no more than $50 per $100,000 of assessed value.
