Hi Jeanita- thanks for the tax base info; but how about a follow-up article showing how these county $$ are spent and even how much cascades down to each city?
I ask because it just seems with all of these additional funds that we should NOT being seeing the degradation of community services that we are seeing in our cities.
Example: there are places in San Ramon where weeds on public sidewalks (not residential areas) are a foot tall. Look all along San Ramon Valley Blvd.
As well traffic light control systems in San Ramon have been in need of updating for a few years now.
I think the community would appreciate seeing where the money goes and how it is spent, so we can better understand where the degradation issue lies. Many thanks!
