La Cañada Flintridge has a measure concerning taxes on the March 5 ballot.
The La Cañada Flintridge Essential Services Measure proposes to establish a ¾-cent sales tax that is estimated to provide about $2,625,000 annually to the City until ended by voters. The funds will be used for services including increasing neighborhood sheriff patrols; preparing for and responding to wildfires/natural disasters; repaving and repairing streets/potholes; keeping public spaces safe and clean; maintaining parks and community programs for youth and seniors; and general government use.
A “yes” vote supports establishing a sales tax of 0.75% for general government use. A “no” vote opposes establishing the sales tax.
