SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The city approved a ballot measure for this November’s election that would increase Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) from 10 percent to 13 percent. The tax is assessed on every bill for a reservation at a San Clemente lodging facility, including short-term rentals.
People may submit arguments either for or against the ballot measure prior to it being put on the ballot. They may be submitted to the City Clerk’s office.
The arguments may not exceed 250 words in length.
The last day to submit arguments is Monday, June 27, and the deadline to file rebuttals is July 7. The general election is Nov. 8.
