The School Board thanked members for their months of campaigning for the $196 parcel tax, which voters passed in November.

The Mill Valley School Board honored the members of the Measure B parcel tax committee during its regual meeting in December as a thank you for helping the measure to pass in the November election.

The $196 parcel tax, on top of the existing $731 parcel tax, will generate 1.96 million per year in revenue for the next 8 years to help combat the Mill Valley School District’s looming budget deficit.

Voters approved it on Nov. 6 by 73.6 percent. The measure needed a 66.67 percent majority to pass, and supporters were worried about the 80 percent of voter in Mill Valley who don't have children in schools

The Measure B parcel tax committee that included mailings to residents, lawn signs, a phone bank, rallies, and other methods to raise awareness about how the parcel tax was necessary to maintain current services and staff in the school district.
