Sales Tax Ballot Measure K

On Monday, August 1, the Pleasant Hill City Council voted unanimously to place a revenue measure on the November 2016 ballot. If approved, Measure K would enact a 1/2-cent transactions and use tax (or sales tax) for 20 years, allowing the city to address key infrastructure and service priorities that Pleasant Hill residents have indicated are important. The measure would generate an estimated $4 million in additional annual revenue for the city for local needs.

 

Measure K would provide funding to be used for important city services including:

·         Repaving neighborhood streets and fixing potholes

·         Maintaining and upgrading the city’s storm drains

·         Adding new sidewalks and bike paths

·         Constructing a new community library

·         Funding other city projects and services that Pleasant Hill residents have identified as key priorities.

 

Measure K would establish a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to ensure all voter-approved funds are spent appropriately. In addition, the measure requires mandatory financial audits and reports to the community regarding all revenue collected and spent on city projects and services. If approved by the voters at the November general election, the sales tax would take effect April 1, 2017.
