City of Pittsburg Sales Tax Increase, Measure P (June 2012)
Since the measure was approved, it will levy a half-cent sales tax for five years and then a quarter-cent sales tax for the subsequent five years.
A simple majority was required for approval.
The question on the ballot:
|MEASURE P: "To provide funding that stays in Pittsburg and cannot be seized by the State, to be used for Public Safety, gang prevention, job creation programs for local residents, to keep the Senior Center open, to maintain other City services, shall the City of Pittsburg enact a temporary, half-cent sales tax for five years, reduced to one-quarter cent for five years, then the increase be terminated, altogether, with citizens' oversight, mandatory audits and consistent community reporting?"|
