Measure K, a half-cent transactions & use tax (or sales tax), was approved by Pleasant Hill voters at the November 8, 2016 election. The tax took effect April 1, 2017 for a 20-year period. The measure will generate over $4 million each year in additional revenue for the City.
This additional revenue will be used for important City services including:
Repaving and maintaining neighborhood streets
Maintaining and upgrading the City’s storm drains
Adding new sidewalks, and walking and bike paths
Constructing a new community library; and
Funding other city projects and services that Pleasant Hill residents and the City Council identify as key priorities.
Measure K Oversight Committee and Mandatory Financial Audits
Measure K established a Citizens' Oversight Committee to ensure that all voter-approved funds are spent appropriately. In addition, the measure requires mandatory financial audits and yearly reports to the community regarding all revenue collected and spent on City projects and services.
