Análisis del analista legislativo / Proposal

MEASURE  K

The  City  Council   of  the  City  of  Larkspur   placed Measure K on the November 6, 2018 ballot to ask voters to extend the existing special parcel tax for paramedic services ("tax" or "Paramedic Tax") for an additional  4 years. The tax funds services  provided by the Ross Valley Paramedic Authority  ("Authority") and will expire on June 30, 2019, unless extended by the voters.

In 1983, the voters of Larkspur, along with the other voters within the boundaries of the Authority, initially approved the Paramedic  Tax.   Voters have approved extensions  and increases  in the Paramedic  Tax since that time.   The Paramedic  Tax was last approved  by voters in

2014. The current rate of the tax is $75 for each residential

living unit and for each 1,500 square feet of non-residential developed space, plus a $0.50 Marin County administrative fee.


s/SKY WOODRUFF

City Attorney, City of Larkspur 

 

Measure K would authorize continuing  the Paramedic Tax for another  4 years, until 2023, when it would again have to be renewed  by the voters. The Measure would set the rate for the 2019-20  tax year at $79 for each taxable living unit and for each 1,500 square feet of non-residential developed space, plus the $0.50 County administrative fee. It would authorize annual increases of $4, with a maximum rate in the fourth year of $91.

As a special tax, the Paramedic Tax is restricted to funding paramedic services, including but not limited to emergency  response,  training,  costs  of  medical  supplies and  equipment,  and  replacement  of ambulance  transport units.

If Measure K were approved, the Paramedic Tax would terminate  automatically  after  four years,  unless extended by a subsequent  vote of the voters within the Ross Valley Paramedic Authority.

A "Yes" vote is a vote to approve the extension  of the Paramedic Tax for four years and authorize annual increases of $4, with a maximum rate not to exceed $91 in the fourth year, plus the $.50 County administrative fee. A "No" vote is a vote against  extension  of the Paramedic  Tax, which will terminate automatically  in June 2019 if not extended. Measure  K would be approved  if it received a two-thirds majority of"Yes" voters. A copy of the resolution approving the tax is included in the Voter Information Guide.
