Covina Utility Tax (March 2007)
A Covina Utility Tax was on the March 6, 2007 ballot in Covina, California, where it lost. 40.5% voted in favor. After it lost, the Covina City Council placed a similar measure, the June 2008 Covina Utility Tax, on the ballot.
The wording on the ballot said, "To continue funding general city services including maintaining police services and equipment; fire protection and paramedic services; street maintenance; and services for senior citizens, libraries, parks and recreation; shall the City of Covina update and extend for only 10 years its 6% Utility Users Tax and city ordinance to fund general city services, without increasing the current tax rate, including mandatory annual financial audits and ensuring all funds stay local to maintain Covina city services."
