Measure S Unready
My property tax bill shows that I pay $78/year for an existing “SBCC Bond 2008.” We voted for that one. The additional bond issue, Measure S, would raise our SBCC Bond taxes to $230/year. Capital projects, however, were not chosen until after the dollar amount of the new bond measure was drafted. This sequence is not needs-based. Most of us, including government entities, prioritize what needs doing and then quantify. Should SBCC be exempt from such rudiments of good planning? Would it bode well for completion? Staying within budget? Measure S is not ready for prime time.
