    Local Measures

    Measure R Mosquito Abatement -- County of San Joaquin (2/3 Approval Required)
    67,303 / 59.4% Yes votes ...... 45,964 / 40.6% No votes
    Shall the voters approve by a 2/3 vote, a parcel tax to fund the services of vector and vectorborne disease surveillance and control? The San Joaquin County Mosquito and Vector Control District proposes an annual special tax as set forth in the District's Ordinance.

    The special tax would be based on a per parcel basis for all nonexempt taxable parcels as shown on the County's official tax rolls, not on the property's use or value. The best estimate of the tax which would be required to fund the services of vector and vectorborne disease surveillance and control during the first fiscal year after the adoption of this tax, based on the estimated number of nonexempt parcels available at the time of filing of the tax rate statement is $3.89 per nonexempt parcel.

    If two-thirds (2/3) of those voting on this measure vote "YES," the District may levy a special tax up to the amounts set forth in the Ordinance.
