  • (July 20, 2009, initial report) -- As previewed July 17 by, the LB School Board has voted (4-0, Ellis absent) to put a proposed parcel property tax measure on the November 2009 ballot...and set the tax at the maximum level indicated in its public notice -- $92 a year.

    As previously reported by, the measure would require 2/3 or more voter approval. The measure recites that it is to "mitigate the negative effects of California state funding reductions on the [LB Unified School] District."

    In November 2008, LBUSD area voters approved Measure K, a $1.2 billion debt bond -- costing property owners $60 per $100,000 of assessed property value for 25 years -- for school repairs, upgrades and new construction...but none of those sums can be spent for classroom school programs and the like. It required 55% voter approval for passage; it received 72.12% of the vote.

    On the same ballot, voters in the city of LB faced City Hall's proposed Measure I, a parcel tax of $120 per residential unit (adjusted annually for inflation) for "infrastructure"; it needed 2/3 voter approval and (despite a $700,000+ campaign energetically backed by Mayor Bob Foster) received roughly 53% voter approval.
