Shall the existing parcel tax of Nine Hundred Twenty Five Dollars ($925.00) on each parcel be increased to One Thousand Two Hundred Dollars ($1,200.00) within County Service Area No. 29 annually and extended for a period of ten (10) years, commencing in FY 2007-2008, terminating in FY 2017- 2018, to provide funds for ongoing maintenance dredging in the principal waterways of Paradise Cay along with the north and south entry channels to San Francisco Bay?

|Arguments For Measure B|
Approval of Measure B increases the County Service Area
No. 29 (CSA29) parcel tax from $925 per riparian lot per
year to $1,200 in order to adequately fund ongoing maintenance
dredging of the waterways and entrances to
Paradise Cay for the ten year period June 2007 through
June 2016. The original projections that led to the $925 tax
were done in 2001 and based on the most recent dredging
project (2006) are believed to be inadequate for the following
Maintaining our waterways is vital in protecting property values and also ensuring that Paradise Cay continues to be a highly desirable place in which to live. No other water oriented community in Marin County has the enviable record for the frequency and cost effectiveness of dredging as CSA29. Since 1990 there have been six dredging projects where a total of 167,000 cubic yards of spoils have been removed.
The CSA29 Advisory Board of Bill Canada, Bob Cerf, Pat Lopez, Eric Lyons, Gene Royal, and I urge you to VOTE YES on Measure B.
