A City of Anderson Sales Tax Spending Advisory Question, Measure B
ballot question was on the June 3, 2014 election ballot
for voters in the city of Anderson in Shasta County
, where it was decisively approved
Measure B authorized the city of Anderson to spend more than 50 percent of the revenue from a sales tax increase of 1/2 percent, approved by Measure A, on police protection services. The city council decided to make the Measure A tax increase a general purpose tax, which meant the revenue was designed to go into the general budget. This allowed Measure A to narrowly pass with a simple majority, instead of requiring a 2/3rds supermajority vote.
City officials estimated that the Measure A tax would bring in about a million dollars per year in additional revenue to the city.
The city put this advisory question on the ballot asking voters if they approved of spending at least half of the revenue from the new tax on police protection services. Officials proposed that the remainder be used for park maintenance and graffiti abatement. This approach, in which the city puts a majority-vote, general tax measure on the ballot, specifying its use with an advisory question, was also taken by the city of Woodland in Yolo County.
