Abstract

On June 6, 1980 California voters passed the Jarvis Gann Property Tax initiative, cutting statewide property taxes by 57 percent and thereby reducing local government revenues by seven to eight billion dollars annually. The property tax initiative and location of Caltech within Pasadena provided a unique opportunity for a detailed case study of the manager council system of local government.
