Paso Robles Use of Sales Tax Revenues for Road Repairs, Measure F (November 2012)
Measure F directed the city council in the future, on an advisory basis, to earmark revenues that will be received from the Paso Robles Sales Tax Increase (Measure E) to the repair of roads.
Future city councils cannot be required to use proceeds from the approved Paso Robles Sales Tax Increase (Measure E) for road repairs by this ballot measure. Rather, Measure F simply expresses the views of the city's voters that they would prefer that it be used for road repairs. Future city councils, legally, can use the funds for whatever general fund uses they desire, including raising the salaries of city employees.

The question on the ballot:
|Measure F: "If the voters approve a one half of one percent City limited term general sales tax increase, shall the additional revenues be used primarily for the purpose of repairing and maintaining the City’s roadways?"|
