Provided the City of Gait is annexed into the Sacramento Public Library CFD, to improve libraries by restoring hours; replacing books; expanding literacy programs; and increasing computer access; shall each taxable parcel (exempting commercial, vacant, agricultural, churches and other properties) within a community facilities district encompassing unincorporated Sacramento County and the cities Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Gait and Isleton pay a special tax of $22 annually for four years raising approximately $5.1 million per year?

Impartial Analysis from County Counsel
Measure T proposes to raise revenue for the support of additional library services by establishing a tax assessment on non-exempt real property located within the Sacramento Public Library Community Facilities District No.1996-01. This community facilities district is currently comprised of the unincorporated territory of the County of Sacramento and~the cities of Citrus Heights and Elk Grove. The library district will be expanded to include the territory of the cities of Galt and/or Isleton, but only if annexation is approved by the respective municipal voters of each city.

If approved, the revenues derived would be exclusively dedicated to the special purpose of providing improved and added public library services and facilities, including but not limited to expanding library hours, purchasing new and replacement books and library materials, and increasing and improving computer access, including remote access through the library web site, to on-line resources such as c-books, homework resources, and health and consumer information.

Measure T sets a maximum tax assessment of $22 per taxable parcel, and has no provision for any rate increase. If approved by voters, the assessment would be effective for a period of no more than 4 years - beginning in fiscal year 2001-2002 and ending fiscal year 2004-2005. No assessment would be levied on non-taxable property, such as non-residential commercial, church, publicly owned, agricultural, and vacant property.
