Pluth: Vote no on Measure E

To the community of Clearlake Oaks, Spring Valley and Double Eagle Ranch, please check your real property tax bill and you will learn that for 13 years now we have been paying a $60 parcel tax fee for a single family home.

Now look at your sample ballot and do the math. Your new fee will be a 100-percent increase to a $120 parcel tax per year, which is a forever tax with no sunset. Undeveloped and vacant property has more than doubled.

The special election on April 10 is costing the district more expense. Why not wait until June or November and keep the cost down?

I am grateful for the services provided by the Clearlake Oaks Fire Department and firmly believe we need to keep updated on all services, but not with an open cash account.

Vote no and send the measure back to the board, asking them to come up with an equitable solution.

Dennis Pluth lives in Clearlake Oaks, Calif.
