Measure P - Potential 2014 Local Funding Measure

At its August 5, 2014 meeting, the Monterey City Council unanimously approved placing a sales tax measure (Measure P) on the November ballot. The ballot measure, which was recommended by the Ballot Measure Advisory Committee, seeks a one-cent per dollar increase in the sales tax and sunsets in four years. Proceeds from the special-use tax would be used to fix streets, sidewalks and storm drains. An oversight committee would review use of the funds.

Sidewalk RepairRepair streets, roads and sidewalks

Our streets, roads, walkways and sidewalks are aging and in need of repairs or upgrades. A recent assessment rated our pavement condition only 54 out of 100. Accessibility upgrades are needed to remove hazards and make it easier and safer for senior citizens and disabled residents to get around. Making these needed repairs now will reduce costs in the future.








Sewer in need of repairRepair storm drains to protect
local beaches and the bay

The City of Monterey's storm drain system is nearly 100 years old. The system provides citywide flood control and storm water protection benefits, but is in great need of repair. Rehabilitation of this system will help Monterey maintain effective flood control, protect Monterey Bay and lessen potential road failures due to failing pipes. It is most cost effective to make these repairs to these underground systems while making other infrastructure upgrades.

Local Sales Tax Measure: Dedicated Funding with Citizen Oversight

Penny

At its August 5, 2014 meeting, the Monterey City Council unanimously approved placing a sales tax measure on the November ballot. The ballot measure, which was recommended by the Ballot Measure Advisory Committee, seeks a one-cent per dollar increase in the sales tax and sunsets in four years.


Proceeds from the special-use tax would be used to fix streets, sidewalks and storm drains. No funds could be taken by the State or used for any other purpose. Two-thirds voter approval is required. The measure would sunset after four years, and include independent citizen oversight.
