South San Francisco, CA April 5, 2022 by South San Francisco Neighbor
Dear Editor and the People of South San Francisco:
I’m sure you have seen this message from the “foundation”…… It upsets me that they are asking for donations. Wasn’t the library part of the 30 year tax increase of 0.5% voted on Measure W in 2015. Unfortunately this tax measure was approved – wasn’t the tax suppose to support the new library, as well as the new police station, etc. In addition, there was “suppose” to be accountability of these funds to the citizens. Has this accountability ever been published in the “newsletter” that sometimes gets delivered by the USPS? (Personal note-I never got the notice for the water or the spring clean up flyers).
How does the South San Francisco sales tax compare to the rest of CA?
