Impartial analysis / Proposal

County Counsel

This Measure has been placed on the ballot by the governing Board of Directors of the West Point Fire Protection District.  Article XIIIB of the California Constitution restricts the spending of tax revenues by local government agencies above an annually-adjusted limit, known as an appropriations limit.  If a jurisdiction receives more funds than is allowed under its appropriations limit, it cannot spend that excess amount; jurisdictions that have revenues above their appropriations limit therefore face the risk of having to decrease services.  

 

Approval of this measure would authorize West Point Fire Protection District to spend revenue from all sources from which it is received, including its voter-approved special tax revenue.  Pursuant to Article XIIIB, section 4, voter-approved increases in the District’s appropriations limit may only be in effect for four years.  Therefore, in order for the increased appropriations limit to continue, it must be approved by the voters every four years.  

 

A measure increasing the appropriations limit passes if a majority of those voting on it vote for the measure.  Passage of this measure will not increase taxes; it simply allows full use of those revenues the District receives.  If this measure is approved by the majority of the voters, the appropriations limit established for the West Point Fire Protection District will be increased for each of the fiscal years through 2022 in the amount equal to grant funding and revenue received from the special tax previously approved by the voters in November 2011.
