Committee opts for parcel tax to fund new police station build

The Police Station Citizen’s Advisory Committee (PSCAC) appears to have settled on a funding mechanism for a future ballot measure.

The committee voted nearly unanimously on Wednesday evening to back a parcel tax based on square footage, with 10 votes in favor and two abstentions. Committee member Jim Keith put forth the motion. Sally Seven and John Jocelyn abstained.

The committee has been meeting since late last year to hammer out a ballot measure to either replace or retrofit the aging Claremont police station. This will be the third such ballot measure to be placed before voters since 2015.

More on the meeting will be online this week and published in next week’s edition of the COURIER.
