Measure SM - the Public Safety Parcel Tax Renewal - Passes
November 6, 2019
Dear San Marino Residents,
At yesterday’s San Marino municipal election, you were asked to vote on the renewal of the City’s longstanding Public Safety Parcel Tax, which has been a dedicated funding source for paramedic services, fire protection and prevention, and police protection in San Marino since its original passage in the early 1980s. While the results are not yet certified, initial results show successful passage of the measure, with over 73% of voters casting a vote in favor of it.
This is a huge confirmation of the community’s pride and appreciation for our public safety responders, who dedicate their lives to keeping our community safe. Because of our community’s support, San Marino will be able to continue providing these top-notch public safety services for years to come.
On behalf of the City Council, I thank you for your thoughtful consideration and for continuing our community’s vocal support of our public safety responders. They truly appreciate your trust, and do not take the responsibility given to them lightly.
Mayor Steven W. Huang, DDS
