FY 2023-2024 Measure E Fund Budget

The Committee is made up of five individuals who have been appointed by the City Council. Each City Council Member appoints a Measure E Committee member, so members often change with the election of new Council members.  The Measure E Committee plays a central role in the City’s budgeting process and allocation of Measure E Funding. 

Measure E is a City wide special sales tax of 1%, which was passed by voters in 2012 at ½% and then increased in 2018 to 1%. This special tax can be used to fund Parks, Streets, Police and Fire Departments needs. For example, Measure E has funded new vehicles for the Police and Fire Departments, a new Ladder Truck for the Fire department, the Minnie Park project, the Lyman Gilmore Turf Field, and parts of the street rehabilitation program.  Any spending of Measure E funds is approved by this oversight committee and then approved by the City Council.

Measure E Oversight Committee meetings are held annually in June in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
