San Marcos voters approved bonds in an election on May 6, 2017 that included two separate propositions for public safety and library projects.
The city is authorized to issue bonds in the maximum principal amount of $32.2 million, a tax rate increase 8.37 cents per $100 of valuation*. That amounts to $10.46 a month for the average homeowner, or $125.55 per year for a $150,000 home (the approximate average home value in San Marcos).
