LWVMC Supports Corte Madera June 2018 Sales Tax Measure

The League of Women Voters of Marin County takes a position in support of Measure F, the Town of Corte Madera sales tax extension. Our support is based on the following factors: 

  • The evidence of meaningful citizen involvement in oversight of sales tax funded activityreflected in the minutes of the Sales Tax Citizens’ Oversight Committee
     
  • The identification of exposure and estimation of the Town’s anticipated capital costs associatedwith sea level rise as well as providing for the maintenance of existing flood protection infrastructure
     
  • The attention to and planning for funding of unfunded actuarial liability exposure in pensionobligations (CalPers) and other post-employment benefits (California Employers’ Retiree BenefitTrust)
     
  • The established “Sales Tax Override” fund to account for the use of the sales tax generated revenue stream
     
  • Transparency reflected in an up to date and well-maintained Town web site
