Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

The Carnation City Council has passed Resolution No. 366, placing funding for criminal justice services and stabilization of the City’s monetary reserves before the voters.

This six-year proposition would increase the regular property tax rate for collection in 2012 by $0.61 to $1.90 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. The 2012 levy amount would become the base upon which levy increases would be computed for each of the five succeeding years. The revenue would be used to fund criminal justice services, including police, jail, prosecution, courts, public defender, and domestic violence advocacy, and to help stabilize the City’s monetary reserves.

Should this proposition be approved?[3]
