Prop A, The Parcel Tax:
City College Trustees have placed a temporary $79 parcel tax on the November 2012 ballot to provide more than $14 million in local funds annually for the next 8 years that the state cannot take away. This revenue will help ensure an accessible, affordable, quality education for students; maintain core academic classes in writing, math and science; prepare students for four-year universities; preserve workforce training for careers in nursing, engineering, and technology; fill critical teaching and other positions; and keep college libraries open. The parcel tax requires independent audits and a Citizens’ Oversight Committee, expires after eight years, and all revenue will be retained for local use to support core academic programming.
