"Voters in Bolinas-Stinson Union School District and Inverness passed two ballot measures for special taxes in an all-mail election Tuesday.

The vote for Measure B, a renewal of the special parcel tax to support programs in the Bolinas-Stinson Union School District, was 361 yes and 136 no. A two-thirds majority was required for passage.

The vote for Measure C, a special parcel tax to pay for road work in Inverness, was 18 yes and 1 no. Measure C also needed two-thirds majority to pass.

Measure B aimed to renew and increase the school district parcel tax of $300 per year by $18 for five years. The current parcel tax expires on June 30.

The tax was billed as a way to “continue funding quality educational programs.” The measure includes a senior citizen exemption option.

Measure C for Inverness Permanent Road Division No. 2 called for a special tax of $1,417 per improved parcel and $708 per unimproved parcel per year for 10 years."
