Your Measure K Funds at Work

The voters of San Mateo County have twice voiced their resounding support for improving the quality of life for all by endorsing a local tax to meet local needs.

In 2016, more than 70 percent of voters approved a measure to extend a previously approved half-cent sales tax for an additional 20 years, until 2043. The sales tax extension -- Measure K on the ballot -- raises approximately $85 million a year.

This interactive story map highlights numerous projects and services funded by the Board of Supervisors to meet local needs for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 fiscal years (July 1 to June 30 of each year).
