Respondents Oppose Council Supporting Parcel Tax

Poll shows respondents oppose by 91% the LB City Council Supporting LA County parcel tax to fund storm water clean up and other projects.

I just polled my email readers and asked: Do you think the Long Beach City Council should vote to support a parcel tax that would assess residential and commercial properties an annual fee that would be used to fund (among other items) storm water run off projects?

Results:

91% NO

4% YES

6% Unsure.

The Long Beach Unified School District opposes it. L.A. County Supervisor Don Knabe opposes it.

Not enough information has been given about the tax with specific dollar amounts of where it will be spent. Let's wait for the public hearing on Jan 15th before the LA County Board of Supervisors before the Long Beach City Council jumps in on this.

We need to know what are the alternatives.
