Jump to: navigation, search
A San Marino Parcel Tax for Public Safety, Measure S ballot proposition was on the November 8, 2011 ballot for voters in the City of San Marino in Los Angeles County, where it was approved.

San Marino already has a parcel tax in place, the proceeds of which go to support the city's paramedic, police and fire protection services. This tax was first adopted in 1980 and has been extended seven times by the city's voters. Approximately 13% of the city's budget comes from the tax.

The approval of Measure S means that the existing parcel tax will be extended for four more years.

The size of the tax is based on factors including lot size. It ranges from a low of $395 to a high of $1,071 per parcel.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
