Public Hearing on School Tax Levy March 26

Annually, the Piedmont Board of Education is required to hold two public hearings on levying the Measure A parcel tax. The March 26 hearing is the first of the two hearings. The second hearing is scheduled for April 9.

The Measure A Subcommittee of the Budget Advisory Committee has recommended to the Board that the maximum amount be levied. Consequently, for fiscal year 2014-15 a 2% increase on the $2,406 parcel tax amount is expected. The public hearing will begin at approximately 8:10 p.m., following the 7 p.m. start of the Board meeting.

Comments on the tax levy can be addressed to all Board Members via  Below is the School District’s announcement.

  1. When was the last time that the maxium increase amount was NOT taken?

  2. The legally required hearings are done to give the impression that the Board takes into consideration all segments of the community. The Board always takes the maximum allowed tax.
