Parcel Tax Arguments Published

Pro and Con Campaigns Heating Up –

There will be a contested November election in Piedmont.  The City Council has placed a measure to renew the City parcel tax on the ballot, and opponents have organized to actively oppose the measure, based on concerns regarding the Council’s fiscal responsibility.

Measure Y requires approval by two-thirds of Piedmont voters participating in the election. With one exception in March 2004, Piedmonters have voted to approve the City parcel tax by margins of well over 66 2/3%.

To read the proponent and opponent ballot arguments go to and click on each argument.  All ballot arguments will be distributed to every registered voter prior to the election in the Voter Handbook.
