What is this proposal?

Details — Official information

Impartial analysis / Proposal

Measure HH is an advisory measure. It is not a tax and cannot legally affect how the City spends tax revenue. If enacted, Measure HH would state the voters' intent regarding how the City should spend new revenue generated by an increase in sales tax.

If enacted, Measure HH would advise the City that the voters intend that any new tax revenue be used for public projects including streets; sidewalks; traffic control signals; streetlights; equipment for public safety services; library equipment and collections; and park improvements. Measure HH would further advise that new sales tax revenue should not be utilized for miscellaneous costs including public employee salaries.

Measure HH also advises the City that new tax revenue should be used as additional funding for public projects. This means that new tax revenue should not be used to allow already budgeted money to be repurposed to pay for miscellaneous expenses including public employee salaries.

To be adopted, Measure HH must be approved by a simple majority of the voters in the City of Monterey Park.

A "yes" vote on Measure HH favors its enactment.

A "no" vote on Measure HH opposes its enactment.
