The City Council is holding a special meeting tonight, which is a continuation of the Council’s fiscal sustainability discussions.

Staff will present a proposal that seeks to balance community needs and provide a major step to stabilize the City's fiscal health and address economic uncertainties. The proposal, if placed on the ballot and approved by voters, would ensure new revenue for critical initiatives such as public safety, housing, transportation, sustainability efforts, and restoration of valuable city services beyond the next two years by placing both a business tax and affirmation of a natural gas utility transfer tax on the November 2022 ballot. This proposal would generate approximately $16.6 million in revenue annually to further community investments and restore services.
