A Muir Beach Community Service District parcel tax, Measure E ballot proposition was on the June 8, 2010 ballot for voters in the Muir Beach Community Service District in Marin County, where it was approved.[1]

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.[2]

The money raised by the tax was to pay for capital improvements and maintenance of water supply and distribution equipment and facilities.[3]

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."[2]

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.[2]

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