Well, if the average assessed value weren't so pitifully low in San Carlos --- $400,000 -- the city would be receiving more revenues. Thanks prop. 13. Some of my neighbors from the 70s pay barely $1400 per year. Check for yourself online on the San Mateo County tax assessor's office. I can't believe figures like $1400 per parcel comes close to covering the cost of police, fire, library, schools etc. per year. And some of these benefactors are 2nd generation families who were bequeathed the homes and use the schools, libraries, police just like the rest of residents but pay the same ridiculous, paltry sum. Nice.
