BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION:

Measure K is the half-cent general sales tax initially approved by San Mateo County voters in November 2012, and extended in November 2016 for a total of thirty years. The Board and County staff have conducted study sessions and community outreach efforts to inform priorities for Measure K spending.

 

On March 17, 2015, the Board adopted the Measure K allocation plan for the fiscal year (FY) 2015-17 budget, during which the County anticipates Measure K receipts of approximately $80 million annually. The plan includes $5 million in one-time loans or grants, and $1 million each year for FY 2015-16 and 2016-17, divided equally among the five supervisorial districts, for district-specific needs and projects. On April 28, 2015, the Board approved the criteria and process to be used by staff to administer these funds. In accordance with such criteria, Districts 1 and 4 submit the following requests to use Measure K funds as set forth below in the attachment hereto:

 

District/Project

Amount

District 1 (Supervisor Pine)-Funding for three retreat huts

$25,000

District 4 (Supervisor Slocum)-Funding for two spinners

$50,000

 

This project supports the San Mateo County Shared Vision 2025 goals of creating a prosperous community by providing residents throughout the County of all ages and abilities with educational recreational activities that promote inclusivity and community building.

 

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the resolution as to form.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

There are sufficient Measure K funds appropriated in the Non-Departmental Services FY 2016-17 Adopted Budget for this purpose.
