Measure K is a revenue measure that will be placed on the November 2016 ballot to provide locally controlled funding for consideration by voters. If approved, Measure K would enact a ½ cent transactions and use tax (or sales tax) for 20 years, allowing the City of Pleasant Hill to address infrastructure and service priorities that residents have indicated are important. The measure would generate an estimated $4 million in additional annual revenue for the city – money that could not legally be taken by the state or other agencies. This additional revenue would 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, and funding other city projects and services that Pleasant Hill residents have identified as key priorities.
