Pleasanton Unified School District's administration has addressed one of the objections to its $98 parcel tax measure, known as Measure E.
Opponents of the measure, which is being voted on by mail-in ballot only, have said seniors would have to register every year to receive an exemption; the school administration confirmed Wednesday that this is no longer the case.
Seniors and disability recipients will not be required to re-file for an exemption, provided the property was exempt in the immediately previous tax year and they continue to live in Pleasanton, according to the district's website.
"On an annual basis, the District will verify and renew existing exemptions and, if necessary, confirm with the original applicant that they continue to own and occupy the property," the website says.
Ballots for Measure E are due May 3.
