A City of Bellflower Utility Users Tax, Measure A ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the City of Bellflower in Los Angeles County.[1] It was narrowly defeated.

The utility users tax charged by Bellflower was 5% at the time of the Measure A election. If Measure A had been approved, the tax would have increased to 7%. The new higher tax would have been in effect for five years, generating an estimated $1.6 million a year for those five years.

A simple majority vote was required for approval.
