The City would like to thank everyone who participated in the recently completed community survey.
The survey summary report is posted below. A full report with next-step recommendations will be presented at the regular September 11th City Council meeting. Residents are encouraged to attend this meeting in person or via Zoom to participate and share their thoughts and perspectives.
The survey was designed to evaluate potential support for a supplemental parcel tax to increase funding for fire protection and emergency medical services.
Summary report and recommendations
The Finance Committee received and discussed the Summary Report at its August 30th, 2023, meeting. Results of the survey indicate that Belvedere residents do not support a supplemental fire tax to the level required for a potential measure to pass. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Finance Committee prepared the recommendation to the City Council that 1.) no new fire tax should be proposed at this point 2.) the discrepancy between the fire service tax and its associated cost is an inherent financial risk that needs to be further studied and addressed, and 3.) the relationship with the Tiburon Fire Protection District should be revisited and potentially updated.
The full report with these recommendations will be presented at the regular September 11th City Council meeting.
