This measure sought to renew the current food tax which would expire the end of 2011. Around 68 percent of the money generated from this tax was directed towards road maintenance projects in the city and had been the sole source of road money for the city. The other percentage of the tax went towards other city needs such as infrastructure and park maintenance. The tax was scheduled to be in place for five years before it had to be renewed again.[2]
