City of La Habra Heights Appropriations Limit, Measure G (March 2009)
Measure G authorized the City of La Habra Heights to spend about $1 million in fire tax revenue.
- These final election results are from the Los Angeles County election office.
The Los Angeles County Democratic Party endorsed Measure G.
George Edwards, a candidate for La Habra Heights city council in the March 3 elections, said, "First, a little background on our financial situation. Currently, the City is taking in more revenue than it is legally allowed to collect, about $134,000. This is why Measure G on the March 3rd ballot would require 2/3 of the voters to authorize the City to keep, and spend the excess revenue collected. In the past, the City Council has passed this off as the fire tax. If the community does not vote in favor of Measure G, fire services would be cut. That is a very disingenuous and misleading method the City has used to scare the residents into passing the tax override measure."
The question on the ballot:
|Measure G: "Shall an Ordinance be adopted to renew the City's authority to spend existing revenues from the special fire tax approved by two-thirds of the City's voters in 1997 to provide essential fire and life-safety services by renewing the voter-approved amendment to the City's appropriations limits?
