Análisis del analista legislativo / Proposal

Contra Costa Registrar of Voters

The Brentwood City Council voted unanimously to place Measure A on the November 8, 2016 ballot as an advisory measure. The measure asks voters whether the proceeds of a proposed utility users tax (UUT) imposed by Measure Z on the November 8, 2016 ballot should be used to restore and enhance fire, emergency medical response, and other public safety services in the City.

 

State law allows the City Council to place advisory measures on the ballot. An advisory measure such as Measure A is not binding on the City Council, but express voters’ views which the City Council may wish to follow if voters approve Measure Z.

Measure Z asks Brentwood voters to approve an ongoing tax on electric, gas, telecommunication, and cable bills. If approved by a majority of those voting, the UUT will be three percent (3.0%) in 2017 and six percent (6.0%) in 2018 and future years. The UUT is expected to ultimately raise $6.1 million a year. As a general tax, the funds collected from the UUT may be used for any general municipal service, including fire and emergency medical response.

A “yes” vote on Measure A expresses an opinion that UUT revenues should be used to restore and enhance fire, emergency medical response, and other public safety services in the City of Brentwood. A “no” vote on Measure A may be viewed as: 1) expressing an opinion against using UUT revenues to restore and enhance fire, emergency medical response, and other public safety services in the City of Brentwood; or 2) a neutral opinion, neither in favor of, nor in opposition to, the proposed use of UUT revenue.

If a simple majority of votes are “yes”, then the measure will be approved.
