The Piedmont City Council is expected to decide Monday night whether to ask voters to renew the municipal services tax — usually called the parcel tax — for another four years, starting with fiscal year 2013-14.
If they do so, the renewal will come before voters at the Nov. 6, 2012 general election.
The proposal calls for renewing the parcel tax up to its current maximum level, with the council setting the specific amount each year.
The action requires a "yes" vote by at least 4 of the 5 council members.
According to a report by city staff, the parcel tax has been renewed by voters every four years following its initial passage in 1980. it presently brings in about $1,550,000 a year.
The council will meet in public session at 7:30 p.m. in the City Hall council chambers, 120 Vista Ave., following a half-hour closed session. The meeting agenda is attached. The agenda and related staff reports are available on the City of Piedmont website.
