BACKGROUND:

Measure K is the half-cent general sales tax initially approved by San Mateo County voters in November 2012, and extended by the voters 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 A (now Measure K) allocation plan for the FY 2015-17 budget, during which the County anticipates Measure K receipts of approximately $80 million annually. The plan included $5 million in one-time loans or grants for FY 2015-16, and $1 million each year for FY 2015-16 and 2016-17, divided equally among the five Board 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, District Two submitted a request to use Measure K funds as set forth below and in the attachment hereto:

 

District/Project

Amount

District 2 (Supervisor Carole Groom) - Hillbarn Theater: Funding to underwrite summer camp programs for Foster City and other San Mateo County youth whose families seek need-based scholarships.

$5,000

 

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

 

Funding these scholarships for local youth will allow in-need families to send their children to the invaluable Conservatory Program at Hillbarn Theater, exposing them to the arts at a critical stage in their development.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

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