The one-cent sales tax idea didn't work, so the city is asking for a half-cent. Sound familiar?
|Building our City sales tax 1/2 cent at a time|
San Mateo Daily Journal/Bill Silverfarb, 6/21/12. "City puts half-cent sales tax on ballot."
"Half Moon Bay will once again ask its residents to approve a sales tax hike this November after voters rejected a similar measure in 2010.
This time, though, the City Council is only putting a half-cent sales tax increase on the ballot while in 2010 it put a 1-cent sales tax increase, Measure K, on the ballot.
.... While the city’s operating budget is just about balanced, it has virtually no funds for capital improvements. ..... The half-cent sales tax hike, if approved, will bring in about $870,000 annually." Read Article.
