Arguments FOR

ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF MEASURE C 

This is a general tax to pay for general city services. It will pay for law enforcement, fire protection, street and sidewalk repair, debt reduction and other essential city services. 

The Great Recession has left us with declining federal and state funding and declining property tax due to lower assessed values. This has made it a real challenge to provide the most basic of services. We have had to reduce city staff; we have disbanded our police force and contracted with Sacramento County Sheriff Dept. We have had to defer maintenance on our streets, city buildings and storm drains. The Fire Department has aging fire fighting and protective equipment that is well past it useful life and needs replacement.
