Published Arguments — Arguments for and against the ballot measure

Arguments FOR

This is the companion measure to Measure K which, if approved, will raise approximately $4.75M per year.  Approximately 40% of the proceeds will come from visitors. 

By voting “Yes” on this companion measure, you are advising current and future City Councils to restrict the use of Measure K proceeds to maintaining and repairing streets, bridges, and sidewalks in Paso Robles.

In 2012, voters approved a half-percent sales tax measure and a similar advisory measure.  The City Council responded by directing that all funds raised by the 2012 sales tax measure be used to improve City streets and roads. The City has made good on that promise and proved it through audits and quarterly Citizens Oversight Committee reports. 

Measure K strengthens that promise by requiring the Citizens Oversight Committee to report to all residents quarterly.  It also requires that all Measure K funding be used only in the City of Paso Robles, so that it cannot be taken by the state or federal governments. 

By voting “Yes” on both measures, you can help ensure that all monies raised are used in Paso Robles for the residents’ declared high-priority purposes.

Please join community and business leaders in supporting YES on Measure N.
